46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Web 2.0 for Education | 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...

Stampsy is a new iPad app for creating digital content. The steps are easy to follow - add images and text to your page using drag-and-drop method. Change colours or fonts, and design the page as you like.

The result you'll get is a linear presentation with great visual potential, perfect for storytelling purposes.

There is a small inconvenience though - you will need a Facebook account to use the application.

The app is free. Download it here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stampsy/id582398120?mt=8

Stampsy is an interesting graphic tool currently for the iPad. It has a few necessry tools such as Headline, Text, Images, Colour Palette, Various Fonts, and best of all it is limited to 10 pages. If Powerpoints were limited to 10 pages I wonder how much real information would be lost? No doubt we'd see the important information. Check it out.

Does it pay to know your type? | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

In this infographic, you'll get an overview of the 16 types to give a sense of how these bigger-than-life personalities fit in the Myers-Briggs philosophy. The official test is based on Carl Jung’s work in psychological typology.

Interesting infographic on MB types from the Washingtop Post

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, April 28, 2013 9:14 AM

Well, the first claim that the unknown writer makes (no by-line attributed), that universities spend "millions of dollars" each year giving this personality test to their students, is just buncomb: a succinct fairly accurate version of Myers-Briggs is online for free, and that's what we ask students to take.  No one pays for the personality indicator except by means of time to take it and internet connectivity.

 

We then ask the students to write reflections of whether this type suits them or not, and what that means in terms of their study habits and needs. So students are not asked to conform to their types, as this article wants its readers to do; they are asked instead to analyze their typology for accuracy and helpfulness in understanding themselves and their type's relationship to their areas of study.

 

As for the "infographic," I've worked with students to analyze, as a survey, the questions and results of Myers-Briggs in argument classes before, and there's no doubt that the questions asked lead to the answers given.  So it's kind of bizzare that someone *ascribed* types to historical figures who never took the test (or if they did, never made their types known) and then show these figures as "typical" of the types.

 

I personally come up with two of my letters always changing back and forth (INTJ?  ENTP? INTP?  ENTJ?).

 

This "article" is misleading and silly.  In fact, I'll bet that many of these people actually did take the Myers-Briggs: the test was invented back in the '20s and '30s by a mother and daughter who wanted the daughter to marry, knowing what the man was really like.  Actually published in 1943, it was a standard psychological tool for many years; anyone who had psycological counseling in the '60s and '70s probably took it. 

 

So these unnamed writers of this article might do well to search archives and see if any of their reported personalities ever actually took the test.

 

But wait -- that would be real journalism.

Sorry.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, April 28, 2013 4:33 PM

Does it pay to know your type? Some say, yes; others say, no. Lot of study and information on personality traits/types. Do they have merit? What do you think?
