The Best Pictures - Beutler Ink | Infographics ideas for Education | Scoop.it
We find your story and help you tell it.
Jacqui Sharp's insight:

A very simple infographic with only icons but these pictures tell a story. This would be a great one to share with students to ask them is there is anything missing, does the infographic give us all the information we need? Another thinking activity would be to look at the icons, compare the movie name and identify what components of the graphic represent the movie.

Although this assignment must have been engaging, if you read this infographic, there is no proof of "synthesis" of the information.  OK...the title says he was a legend, but the infographic is mere facts.  Where is the "so what..."  "Why..."  What if..."  When you assign a "project" - even with technology, insure that you are requiring some synthesis, higher level thought, transformation of the mere facts.   :  Why is our world better because Abraham Lincoln walked the Earth? -- That is what this chart should show.   IMHO
