How to Create Awesome Infographics Without Being a Designer

How to Create Awesome Infographics Without Being a Designer | IT Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re anything like me, you learned how to use programs like Photoshop and Gimp out of necessity to do minor changes to photos. You might have even dabbled in some easier graphic design projects for your own website, but it takes you hours to get the image or the design looking just right and you’re left exhausted. You might even spend time looking up tutorials on how to achieve a certain effect and still have trouble re-creating it.

 

In short, while you do know your way around the programs like Photoshop to a certain extent, it takes you forever and there’s absolutely no way you’d call yourself a graphic designer. But then, you’re surfing around the web and you noticed some really cool infographics on things like fashion, music and food and you can’t help but wish that you could create something like that; even if it’d take you a week....

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, December 16, 2013 3:08 PM

Technology should be a tool to assist with learning, rather than a big checkmark when it is used!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, January 15, 2014 3:21 PM

This is a great article and needs to be read by every teacher.

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching | IT Leadership | Scoop.it
Though universities are rushing to embrace online courses, true education requires one mind engaging with another.

 

Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves.

 

Just as coaching requires individual attention, education, at its core, requires one mind engaging with another, in real time: listening, understanding, correcting, modeling, suggesting, prodding, denying, affirming, and critiquing thoughts and their expression.

The material and spiritual go hand-in-hand, but the material has proven origins(the "big bang") and as such may have an inescapable end(annihilation), but will the spiritual survive its boon companion, the material?
