10 Best Tools for Beautiful Infographics and Data Visualizations | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it

Content is the king, everyone knows that. But what makes content looks better? Content is no longer just text. It is important to make visual content because human brain process visual information much faster than text. With infographics, you can make complex and boring data interesting.

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs.

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

17 Fantastic Infographic Generators

17 Fantastic Infographic Generators | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it

Data is crucial. However, displaying a chunk of plain data can be monotonous. Infographics visualize plain data and make it visually more appealing. Data turned into infographic has a higher potential to go viral and be effective. While many of us are designers who can design amazing infographs, Infographic Generators can come in handy to Designers and non-designers alike. They can be a time saving resource.

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
Facilitating discussions between students is one of those things that is infinitely easier when you’re teaching in a physical classroom rather than online. When the students are all in one room, discussions happen more naturally. Facilitating the same type of productive, useful discussion when teaching online is more of a challenge.

Digital devices are re-shaping the classroom. I've seen some new tools in action.  As educators, we should learn how students are using these new tools and adjust our teaching appropriately.

Dian J Harrison, MSW, MPA's curator insight, July 8, 2014 8:09 PM
