Don't be fooled by infographic naysayers. Yes there are BAD infographics, yet when I tracked the top 10 for my 125,000 views on Scoopit Infographics owned more than half of almost every feed's top 10. Translation - we need to create infographics and other forms of data visualization.

Here are 3 great tips from an Infographic design pro:

* Keep It Clear.
* Be Iconic.
* Know the rules.

Come to think of it those tips apply to pretty much anything we lucky few Internet marketers do :). M

The Past & Future of Infographics

The Past & Future of Infographics | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

It could be argued that early caveman actually invented infographics.


It wasn’t until 1626, however, that infographics were published in the book Rosa Ursina Sive Sol by Christoph Scheiner. His illustrations clearly and concisely demonstrated the rotation patterns of the Sun. After that, infographics appeared regularly in a variety of other publications.

 

In the 1970’s, The Sunday Times, an award-winning British newspaper, began using infographics to make the news more interesting. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, other newspapers began following suit.

 

By the turn of the 21st century, new technologies emerged that enabled a host of companies to create infographics quickly and easily. Infographics slowly began making their way onto websites, in magazines, products and games...

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

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

Las infografías son una herramienta muy útil por su factor visual: en poco espacio y de forma visulamente agradable y atrayente, engloba datos y relaciona conceptos.

Clear, well laid out infographic with statistics and recognisable graphics and icons. Lots of great information. Would cause a lot of discussion in a classroom.
