Halloween Infographics: Treats For Any Lesson | Design in Education | Scoop.it

We know Halloween will distract most of our students. So it makes sense to continue our annual quest to find some new infographics to use in our lessons to keep them engaged. Here are some of our favorites for this year.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Financial Education: Where Literacy & STEM Meet

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Financial Education: Where Literacy & STEM Meet | Design in Education | Scoop.it

If you ask a roomful of educators, they'll all insist that personal finance education is vital for the recession-era generation. If you ask a roomful of superintendents, however, they'll likely grouse that their districts don't have the time, training, resources, curriculum, testing, and/or support for financial literacy classes. Even as this week's news has highlighted the emerging economic standards for K-12 students, many teachers feel ill-supported to incorporate the ideas of budgeting and investing into their lessons.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Teaching The Super Bowl: Social Media Literacy | Design in Education | Scoop.it

The Super Bowl is the media event of the year. The avalanche of interviews and marketing, therefore, makes this football game the year's most important media literacy opportunity. Marquee corporations roll out big bucks to parade alluring ads on TV. High-profile teams brand their players to create celebrities out of athletes. The logos of NFL franchises are splayed across innumerable billboards, banners, and bulletins.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: The Mayans And The Fiscal Cliff In Infographics

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: The Mayans And The Fiscal Cliff In Infographics | Design in Education | Scoop.it

So what do the Mayan calendar and the Fiscal Cliff have in common? Perhaps nothing more than counting down the end of days for the world or allowing taxes as we know them to increase. There's certainly no shortage of information in the media, and it seems hard to avoid talking about these "events" with our students.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Veterans Day - Infographics About Those Who Serve

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Veterans Day - Infographics About Those Who Serve | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Sometimes when we get caught up in the midst of the chaos from the loss of electricity and Internet access, we forget that there are others who faced far more: our veterans of foreign wars. "All I want is a hot shower and a cup of coffee" takes on a new meaning if you fought in deserts, jungles, and mountains. We begin to realize our inconveniences are small in comparison to those who served for months or years in harm's way, defending our nation.

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

Visual Resources To Teach About The U.S. Government Shutdown | Design in Education | 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.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: March Madness In The Classroom - Teaching With Tournament Graphics

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: March Madness In The Classroom - Teaching With Tournament Graphics | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Given the focus on March Madness and bracketology, it makes sense to incorporate these tantalizing distractions into the flow of the classroom. Half of our students seem absorbed with their picks, and the other half seem oblivious of televised sports. But whenever a mass media event takes over the airwaves for a period of time (like the Super Bowl, Inauguration, State Of The Union, or Mayan Apocalypse), it presents a prime opportunity to forge real-world connections with critical skill development.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Visual Letters: Language In Motion | Design in Education | Scoop.it

We came across a visually arresting video called "Alphabetic" that offers a dynamic way to approach lettering with students. Created by Ariel Costa of BlinkmyBrain, the clip presents a quirky, three-dimensional animation of the alphabet. On the surface, it's a fun film with clever transitions and an inventive personification of each character. On another level, however, it offers terrific possibilities for a range of learners.

The educational benefits of President Obama's speech draw from more than just the text. Even as several phrases from his oration are already gaining station among the honor roll of historical words, we recommend taking a look at Fellow Citizens, by Robert V. Remini and Terry Golway, which is our favorite collection of past inaugural addresses.

How to Create Infographics in 30 Minutes or Less

How to Create Infographics in 30 Minutes or Less | Design in Education | Scoop.it

From word clouds to network data visualizations, infographics have become a primary format for content in a relatively short period of time. Although the ‘infographic’ is nothing new, its proliferation and evolution has been nothing short of exponential in the past few years.

If you want to get a message across, whether it is for your business, blog, or book club, using an infographic can be the best way to do it. If you’re incapable of drawing a recognizable human stick figure, let alone an entire data visualization, you may be agonizing over the disturbing fact that infographics are all the rage.

It just so happens that there are many people out there who want to deliver a message using an infographic who do not have any artistic skills. It’s lucky for us that tools and resources have popped up all over the place to help even the most hopeless of us (like me) create beautiful infographics.

Follow the links within the article  not only to see the dataviz, but to see the programs used to create them. As with infographics, I recommend discerning the context,utility and depth of analysis the visualization provides.
