Hey! Ben from eduCanon. Love all the great reactions! I wanted to follow up and let everyone know that I was a teacher and know the need to be upfront: eduCanon's current functionality will ALWAYS be free :) We're building out premium features, but that will never restrict you from your current uses/content! Also thought I'd throw out a little about what we've recently released:<br><br>1. You can now use videos from YouTube, Vimeo, and TeacherTube!<br><br>2. We have free response (open-ended) questions in our premium version, as well as gradebook export, and lesson search through the eduCanon database.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

Via Winners Education
Liza Zamboglou's insight:

There are a number of tools available for creating simple infographics and data visualizations. Infographics have been around for many years and the growing number of easy-to-use, free tools available make it easier than ever for you to create your own infographic. They can be used to communicate a message or present large amounts of data meaningfully. What makes Infographics so popular is their visual attractiveness. 

 

The following list a number of tools which will let you get started if you want to make an infographic, or better still, get your students to create one!  My favourites would be piktochart and Balsamic, but the one you decide to use will most likely depend on what you want to create.
