5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | Educational tools and ICT | Scoop.it

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools

40 Maps That Explain The Internet

40 Maps That Explain The Internet | Educational tools and ICT | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, August 22, 1:00 PM
Here's why the Internet works, "... because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network.  (So far...)   This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Educational tools and ICT | Scoop.it

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...

Sticky notes always work well in face-to-face workshops so this online version looks good. Up to 5 collaborators with the free plan - notes can then be saved as a PDF

The interface seems a little buggy, but the possibilities are broad. Can't get an invitation email to load, some sticky windows become unresponsive. Hope for fixes, so we can try this for teaching team collaboration, if nothing else.
