Infographics, when used correctly, appropriately, are powerful tools for conveying a lot of pertinent information plus they support visual learning and thinking. I curate a Scoopit on Infographics...
Beth Dichter's insight:
Jackie Gerstein shares her top picks for education infographics this year. Some of these have been shared in this Scoop.it but many are new. The list of infographics includes:
* The Internet Access Gap in Education
* The Past, Present and Future of Education
* State of Creativity in Education: An Adobe Survey
* The Gamification of Education
* Tapping into Mobile Learning
* Investing in Girls' Education Pays Off
Many of these would be useful as topics for discussion or to use to teach students why infographics are useful in displaying data.
