Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 6, 2014 9:25 PM

Richard Byrne shares seven free tools to help create graphs and charts. Check out the list below and click through to the post for additional information on each tool.

* LucidChart - available free to schools and also as a Google app

* Google Fusion Tables - a spreadsheet app that allows you " to create visualizations of data set comparisons"

* Hohli Online Chart Builders - allows you to create "a variety of charts for online display"

* Infogr.am - " an online tool for creating interactive charts and graphs to use in interactive infographics"

* Better World Flux - this was created for the World Bank and "allows users to create animated visualizations of development data"

* Gapminder - also allows for data visualization and provides a page for educators

* Haiku's Deck Web App - Haiku Deck continues to add new features and now provides the ability to create graphs and charts

As always it pays to check out each tool and determine which you think will best meet the needs of your class (and that may be a choice of more than one).

Gapminder is a great resource for maths teachers, giving students a new perspective on graphing. Creating graphs from raw data, it allows students to see how effective graphs can be to display a data-set. The teacher can select data from different countries, populations and can even select what year they want the data from. 

This resource would be extremely handy in the classroom for a whole range of subject areas. Working in conjunction with the SAMR model and high level pedagogy.

Much appreciated Leigh for this scoop!
