The next time you need to evaluate what students have learned about a subject, ask them to create an infographic. When students take the information they have learned and compile it into a visual format, it demonstrates mastery of the content. Infographics stimulate visual learning. Encouraging students to create and share their infographics in the classroom takes their learning to the next level. Teachers need to provide students with infographic creation tools that provide students with a way to create infographics easily, to allow them to focus on the content rather than mastering a new technology.
When evaluating infographic tools teachers should look for tools that are easy to use but are also rich with functionality. These tools should also make it easy to print and share the infographics that students create. Infographic tools that allow students to compile their data into visually interesting charts and graphs are also a plus. Here are a few tools that we have evaluated that offer these important features.
