Theophilus's curator insight, March 23, 6:21 AM

How do you inspire meaningful learning in Higher Education in the midst of a culture where there's "layer after layer of management - a kind of economic waste, but useful for control and domination..."? Chomsky shows some startling connections useful for learning.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

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.
