46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Educational technology | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Piktochart has recently been upgraded, and now it makes infographics and presentations more interactive. You can now insert hyperlinks in your content and make your charts and tabs interactive. Also it is easier to save and share your infographics.

Unfortunately, free account is very limited, it gives you only 4 basic themes to choose from. Paid accounts for students start at $3.33 per month.

Here’s one of the infographics that I spent time looking at this morning.  It’s titled “The pros and cons of social media in education” and was blogged by the Edtech Times who credit the authorship to OnlineUniversities.com.

Type: Versus

Pros: Easy to understand and read

cons: The colors clash with one another to the point at which it's hard to look at, the colors also look dull and washed out

Kiya James's curator insight, May 13, 2016 3:21 PM

Pro: Good idea for useful bait. The headline really grabs a readers attention.

Con: The colors chosen for the font and details of the infograph clash a little with the picture of the players.

Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.

Internet Addiction Infographic Raises Awareness

Internet Addiction Infographic Raises Awareness | Educational technology | Scoop.it

Has the internet become a drug?

 

One study titled “Microstructure Abnormalities in Adolescents with Internet Addiction Disorder” from PLoS One concluded that adolescents with Internet Addiction Disorder:

 

Had multiple structural changes in the brain. The gray matter atrophy and white matter FA changes of some brain regions were significantly correlated with the duration of internet addiction.

 

These results may be interpreted, at least partially, as the functional impairment of cognitive control in IAD. The prefrontal cortex abnormalities were consistent with previous substance abuse studies, hence we suggested that there may exist partially overlapping mechanisms in IAD and substance use.

 

We hoped that our results will enhance our understanding of IAD and aid in improving the diagnosis and prevention of IAD.
