Infographics is a very interesting way of presenting information. Students can really learn to dig deep into specific information and facts and create infographics to show what they have learned. GREAT!!!!!

The Anatomy of a Great Infographic

The Anatomy of a Great Infographic | dataInnovation | Scoop.it

Created by the team behind Graphic Design Degree Hub, this self-referential infographic shows us how to create a great one. 

According to this chart, it’s all about having reliable and compelling information, giving an issue a new perspective, and a main purpose—a task which is pretty challenging in itself.
