Useful tools for creating infographics

Mary A. Axford's curator insight, April 1, 5:27 AM

Nice collection of infographic tools from an expert in digital curation.

 

David Baker's curator insight, April 3, 8:47 AM

I am adding this to my seminar resources. Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.

Fantastic website from Notre Dame helps instructors (and students) design effective media-based assignments. Great examples and how-tos for inspiration.

Designing for Learning's curator insight, December 2, 2013 8:34 PM

The media capabilities of student devices (including but not limited to iPads) open up a diverse spectrum of rich assignment formats. This Notre Dame site contains helpful exemplars and instructions for those starting out in this new field of both formative and summative assessment.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, March 10, 2013 6:05 AM

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Been thinking about G+. Thanks for sharing, Al. ;)

How To Design Your Own Infographics

How To Design Your Own Infographics | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects.

 

Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.

Visual Resources To Teach About The U.S. Government Shutdown

Visual Resources To Teach About The U.S. Government Shutdown | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The shutdown of the United States government began today. With no plan of action from either political party, there is consequently no easy lesson for teachers to share with their students.

Any discussion of the current Congressional stalemate naturally begins with a civics lesson about political parties and the separation of powers. The questions today from our students, however, quickly centered on issues of blame and health care.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | TEFL & Ed Tech | 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...

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

Even though "social network" has became a trending topic in our daily life, it was there since the very beginning of computing. The form of information exchange maybe different, but end result was pretty much the same.
