Who better than Visual.ly to share 7 online tools that will help you create visual, be they simple images, infographics or a mind map. This post shares the following tools:

* Canva - a free tool

* Pixlr - a free tool

* PicMonkey - a free tool, but you may pay for additional tools

* Quozio - free tool

* Share As Image - a free tool, but will show a watermark; pay for no watermark

* Skitch - free through Evernote

* Coggle - free tool that allows you to create mind maps

Visuals are a key part of learning. These seven tools provide a range of options that you may want to use when designing materials for your classes (or perhaps students would find use for them in your class).

If you have iPads in your school and teachers need help with apps check out these "App Task Challenges" created by Craig Badura. Currently four are available and you may download them here. Learn about these apps for the iPad: Camera, Popplet and Skitch plus there is an App Smash Challenge you might undertaken. In addition Darin Spenser was inspired by Badura's work and has created on on Stick Around. These handouts could also be modified to use with students. All are available on this website.
