20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.

 

What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles.

With 2013 being the year of statistics, infographics will be an essential tool.

Carey Leahy's curator insight, January 19, 2013 2:40 AM

Might be a great way to visually show the use that is made of the library space &/or personnel!  Choose the tool that suits you.

As access to information changes so does the role of the librarian. Instead of being need less our skills in research and teaching are needed more than ever. When teachers and librarians collaborate the students benefit from both skills sets.

The February UnSlump Yourself Challenge - @PernilleRipp

The February UnSlump Yourself Challenge - @PernilleRipp | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
Aah February; a month of love, of reading, of waiting for spring if you in the Northern Hemisphere.  While February may  be the shortest month of the year sometimes in teaching it can feel like the longest of them all.  While I love this month for the work I can do with my students, I find that sometimes the dark nights and cold Wisconsin winters can be positively slump inducing.  Rather than dread the slump, why not do something pro-active?

So this year I plan on doing my very own unslumping challenge and you are more than welcome to join me.  Every day for the month of February, I plan on doing something to either reinvigorate myself or make a difference to others.  It will not cost me much money but will hopefully instead lead to a deeper level of gratitude for the incredible job I have, the amazing students I get to teach, and the wonderful people in my life.

Here is what I plan on doing

Interesting that the term digital literacy is having problems about skills as much as the term information literacy. Teachers are confusing digital literacy with how to use technology and not the skills of finding and evaluating information.

Via Karen Bonanno, Jo Laretive
Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:
School librarians have always taught how to evaluate websites and today it's no different. The public are now more aware of the fact that there is news out there that needs to be questioned. In that way it is making librarians jobs easier because we have the skills to teach evaluation and are now being asked to do so.
