46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

 

 

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. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.

Mind-mapping is so important because we need to organize our thoughts in a way that we can make sense of information.  The same goes for our students.  Many of the sites in this article are free with upgrades you have to pay extra for.  They are worth investigating.

This map is absolutely brilliant.  The problem to travel "bucket lists" is that the more you travel, the more you discover and the list never gets any shorter.  But never forget why so many people love to travel.  Are you interested in actually purchasinf this?  It's nicely priced.
