Conrad Albertson's insight:

A very interesting (albeit long and detailed) discussion about the changes driving education and information management in schools and beyond.

How to Create an Infographic in Under an Hour [+10 Free Templates] | Technology for the Modern Educator | Scoop.it

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 

 

Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation. 

 

Seriously -- don't throw in the towel just yet. You, too, can create professional-looking, high-quality infographics ... quickly! And I'm going to prove it. First things first ...
