Gordon Shupe's insight:

For the Educators and Learners who believe in the importance of communication:


Infographics are one of viral contemporary modes of communication on the web. Infographics harken back to Poster Sessions at professional conferences, but have a wider spread popularity among the exploding population of people publishing their thoughts to the web. Infographics are also becoming popular for classroom activities – especially STEAM activities: Building Infographics to report out on a topic/issue/condition. Think of them as another way for students to vet information, organize that information, and communicate in a digital design format. One aspect of Infographics (and one that is lacking on most of the Philosophical Chairs activities observed from a science teacher's perspective) is research, data, and citing sources.
