Visualizing Text: The New Literacy of Infographics | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
Infographics are modern, written artifacts about collected resources in a dynamic, visual format. Infographics should be viewed as complex, standalone texts, not simply a text feature or graphic element.

Jackie Gerstein shares her top picks for education infographics this year. Some of these have been shared in this Scoop.it but many are new. The list of infographics includes:

* The Internet Access Gap in Education

* The Past, Present and Future of Education

* State of Creativity in Education: An Adobe Survey

* The Gamification of Education

* Tapping into Mobile Learning

* Investing in Girls' Education Pays Off

Many of these would be useful as topics for discussion or to use to teach students why infographics are useful in displaying data.

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.

* The top ten countries by percentage

* The young and connected

* Future trends
