18 Infographics that You Can Actually Learn From

18 Infographics that You Can Actually Learn From | 1000+ words | Scoop.it

What are the secrets to these useful, graceful infographics?

While today’s infographics often form a complex narrative and include a series of stats, charts, and graphs, they still need certain core attributes, and both the most simple data visualizations and the components of a complex infographic can help us to see best practices. Great infographics offer your audience a compelling visual experience that’s as simple as possible, and is organized in a visual hierarchy.

Though few infographics hit the mark across the board, there’s a teachable point stashed in each example — whether the infographic includes a textual narrative or a bare bones map. Let’s set out to see what lessons these infographics illustrate for us.

Infographics are a great way to make information visible. I love that they create a snapshot of basic facts and ideas. We can use them to create much larger narratives in our classrooms. Getting students to create them is a good way to demonstrate understanding and make connections between ideas.

40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World | 1000+ words | Scoop.it

If you’re a visual learner, then you know maps, charts and infographics can really help bring data and information to life. Maps can make a point resonate with readers and this collection aims to do just that.

A few of these maps are important to know, some interpret and display data in a beautiful or creative way, and a few may even make you chuckle or shake your head.

If you enjoy this collection of maps, the Sifter highly recommends the r/MapPorn sub reddit. You should also check outChartsBin.com. There were also fantastic posts on Business Insider and Bored Panda earlier this year that are worth checking out. Enjoy!
