Using infographics for teaching allows the student to learn and understand better as they are just slides and using our own creations on how to present it. It is an effective way to teach students using infographics and it is simple and doesn't require as much time typing. I agree with what the author said about keeping it simple and easy and the students benefits from it. In the future I am sure most of the items will be controlled using technology.

Say Cheese for These 7 Free Stock-Photo Sites

Say Cheese for These 7 Free Stock-Photo Sites | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it

Whether you promote content that is fresh or seasonal, evergreen or topical, your endeavor will be meaningless if it doesn’t make your readers sizzle and pop with excitement. How do you capture the attention of your audience without crafting content from scratch?

Perhaps all you need is a high-quality photo. Not a bland, lifeless image, but an attention-grabbing picture — one with a story behind it. Maybe you need a series of compelling images if you’re marketing a lengthy content piece.

Research shows that:

  • Color visuals increase a person’s willingness to go through a content piece by 80%.
  • Posts or articles with images receive 94% more views than posts or articles without images.
  • Understanding of content jumps from 70% to 95% with the integration of images....

John Dalziel's curator insight, July 28, 2016 5:29 AM
There’s quite a few apps and services out there that make it easy to convert colour photos to black and white or to retain just a splash of colour. But what if you wanted to go in the opposite direction and add colour to a black and white photo? There aren’t many easy ways to do this, but thanks to a new service from Algorithma, it just got a lot easier. 
Users can... 
► paste an URL of a black and white photo available online (make sure the URL ends with .jpg for it to work) or 
► upload an image from their computer 
...and then hit the "Colorize It" button 
NOTE - The colourisation definitely varies from image to image. With some black and white photos, users will get a very subtle, sepia colourisation that makes it look like a vintage photo with subtle hints of colour. 
 With other photos that have a large amount of sky or grass in them, they'll get an impressively accurate rendering. 
Well worth trying...
