Eight Free tools for Teachers to Make Awesome Infographics ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Eight Free tools for Teachers to Make Awesome Infographics ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it

It seems like web users are favouring this form of content format over other forms. Their  visually attractive display, the bright and shiny colours they  include are what make out of them an appealing means of communication. I personally like them because I find them factually interesting, to the point, and easy on eyes. I have devoted a whole section in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning  to the educational infographics I find online. Anyway today I am sharing with you tools that you can use to make your own infographics. Check out the list below.
