46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | visualliteracy | 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...

All You Need to Know About Infographics: Tips, Tutorials, Guides | visualliteracy | Scoop.it

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

Departing the Text: Optical Illusions and their role in Education, Brain Training, and Visual Literacy | visualliteracy | Scoop.it

Aside from being fun, optical illusions actually play a role in education and in visual literacy.  They help illustrate that we see by learning to see.  While our brains relay information taken in through our eyes, we learn to interpret what we see by recognizing and storing patterns we learn as we continuously interact with the world around us.  These patterns enable us to identify faces, dangers, friends, directions, routes, and opportunities around us.
