Free Technology for Teachers: Five Good Online Tools for Creating Infographics

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Good Online Tools for Creating Infographics | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it

In my previous post I shared some advice from Randy Krum, author of Cool Infographics, about creating infographics. In his book Randy devotes a chapter to design tools. Many of the tools used by professional designers cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. But you don't have to spend anything if you want your students to try their hands at creating a data visualization in the form of an infographic. Here are five free tools that your students can use to create infographics...

The 7 Key Elements to Creating Successful Infographics - Jeffbullas's Blog

The 7 Key Elements to Creating Successful Infographics - Jeffbullas's Blog | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it

Infographics creation and sharing has exploded. Short attention spans require optimal visual communication. Here are the 7 keys to successful infographics...


The change extends not just to the words and platforms but the visual communication. We are rapidly moving to a visual web that communicates with 6 second videos captured on mobiles using social visual platforms like “Vine”. We have fast growing social networks that destroy the communication (photos or videos with a text) after the receiver has read or viewed the message. That ephemeral and temporary service is provided by the exploding social network, SnapChat (which has just turned down a $3 billion cash buyout from Facebook).


We all know the importance of images and photos to drive sharing on Facebook. Twitter has just added images to the stream and research show that it increases engagement. That is why infographics creation and sharing has exploded in the last couple of years. Short attention spans require optimizing communication that tells a story in a glance....

12 Insights for Visual Content Success with Infographics | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it

Some marketing skeptics claim that infographics are dead. I disagree. I think bad infographics are dead, and always have been. Well-designed and executed infographics, on the other hand, are not just alive — they are a thriving and essential part of any integrated content marketing strategy.

With all the competition for consumer attention on the web, it takes more than just creative wording to rivet eyeballs. An infographic is a compelling way to use visual content to tell a rich story at a glance.

How to Leverage Infographics for B2C Marketing

How to Leverage Infographics for B2C Marketing | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it

The effectiveness of an infographic as a marketing material depends in large part on the presentation or layout. The visual appeal plus the way information is displayed can go a long way to securing a sale.


Infographics present statistical data in a more palatable manner. Basically, it delivers information as a story, in a way that’s easier to understand. That’s why data shown in these graphics are more easily retained by viewers than if they read it in a paragraph.


With that in mind, marketers can take advantage of this potential and present their products in such a way that it will remain in the minds of the consumers. One of the best ways to do that is to tell a tale....

16 ultra-creative CVs / interactive résumés that catch the eye | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it

Pretty much everybody has created a CV / résumé at some stage in their life. As with most forms of content I think the key is to establish a tone of voice, and try to stand out from the surrounding noise.


I always used to put ‘vinyl junkie’ in the ‘interests’ section on my CV, which always worked a treat in interviews regardless of the role. People would ask me about my passion for music. I’d return the serve by asking the interviewer the same thing. These things can help to break any ice, and I think you should habitually ask plenty of questions in interviews, for all sorts of reasons.


Nowadays there are more opportunities than ever to attract the right kind of attention, and creative professionals in particular can go the extra mile to make an impression. I thought I’d collect a bunch of examples, which may inspire you to do something different...
