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.

Trude Burnett's curator insight, May 9, 12:48 PM

Good tools to make Infographics
