46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

 

 

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.

UMass Lowell Making Learning Leaps with Lecture Capture Initiative - Higher Ed Tech Decisions

UMass Lowell Making Learning Leaps with Lecture Capture Initiative - Higher Ed Tech Decisions | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
When students started struggling in an enhanced calculus class back in 2005, Randy Tyndall and his team wanted to install a solution to help. Their solution of choice was a lecture capture system by Echo360, which enabled professors to capture lectures and computer demonstrations on a single screen for students to view after class. Lecture capture has also upped active learning among students, encouraged flipping the classroom, deepened distance learning, increased student retention rates and made it easier for professors to archive their lectures.
Sanford Arbogast's insight:

“Don’t be afraid to start slow, and don’t be afraid to start with a smaller group and allow it to grow,” Young says. “You want your students and instructors to have a positive experience with it. Start with what you can manage, and grow from there.”
