Me as an infographic! Christina's Bio Illustrates It. | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

To illustrate the previous full video on teaching, learning and doing research via social media in a university setting, here is an Infographic on Christina Costa.


The website also links to her PhD thesis:  

The participatory web in the context of academic research : landscapes of change and conflicts



I just developed an infographic on my experience using easel.ly


It doesn’t look as great as I’d like – need to improve my design skills!! – but this was pretty easy to create.


A great way to illustrate one’s experience.

We do need to encourage creativity in our students. They learn so much more when they handle the content to do something with it.

Car Sizes Through the Years

Car Sizes Through the Years | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

It has been a gradual change, however it is definitely there. Our cars have gotten bigger. Hondas, Porche, even Minis going to Maxi-Minis, and Fords, SUVs.


The infographic is focused on telling one story about the growing size of cars, and the design style is superb.  By using images and outlines of the actual cars, it tells the story much better than a bar chart would have

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Hard to pass up a cool cars & historical piece on how sizes have changed, shared in such a compelling way.  ~ D

Infographic: A Beautiful Calendar Designed Around 12 Different Types Of Measurement

Infographic: A Beautiful Calendar Designed Around 12 Different Types Of Measurement | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

Calendars come in all sorts of forms, from the purely functional apps on our smartphones to the propped-up desktop ones that are mostly just a means of delivering a new Far Side joke every day. The Units of Measure Calendar Poster, as its name suggests, isn’t the most straightforward one to categorize. Or even one that’s easy to recognize as a calendar at all.


It doesn’t leave any room for you to jot down appointments, though it does include all 365 days, which you can notch off one by one. Mostly, it’s just an exquisite graphical compilation of 12 different units of measurement, a tightly packed collection of diagrams and conversion tables and other neat looking things of the sort.

Blended Learning Is a Comfortable Alternative to MOOCs and Online Learning [#Infographic] | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | Scoop.it

"A close look at brick-and-mortar classrooms highlights differences between blended learning and other trends."

In blended classrooms, also know as flipped classrooms, professors use classroom time to interact with students and use the Internet to deliver lectures, typically as web videos. 

  • "[there is some] ...element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace and at least in part at a ...location away from home."
