Infoviz Education: Animated Visualizations for Kids

Infoviz Education: Animated Visualizations for Kids | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"We love infographics. We love animation. And we’re all for engaging kids in creative education. So today we’re looking at three educational infoviz animations that shed light on complex or important issues in beautifully art-directed ways that make little eyes widen and little brains broaden."

If you are looking for three great infographics that are animated this post is for you.

The first video is 'How to Feed the World' and explores "the science behind eating and why nutrition is important." The suggested ages are 9 - 14.

The second video, 'The Story of Stuff' is a fascinating look at "the entire materials economy." This is a longer video (just over 20 minutes) but it provide a great base for a classroom discussion. If you  click  through to their website you will find many other videos that have been created including 'Story of Bottled Water', 'The Story of Solutions' and 'Story of Electronics.'

The third video is 'Meet the Elements,' a "wonderful animated journey across the periodic table."

There is a fourth video but it is not necessarily appropriate for students (at least younger students). This one is a reinterpretation of LIttle Red Riding Hood.

If you know of some great videos for teachers to use share them by leaving a comment!

Interactive animation that breaks down the 'wheel' - includes suggested 'tools' that could be used for different related activities.

A tad skeuomorphic for my tastes but the thinking behind it, is great…
