46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | טכנולוגיה חינוכית | 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. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.

So if you want to try to make infographics–or better yet have students make them–where do you start? The 46 tools below, curated by Faisal Khan, are a good place to start. And with the sheer quantity and variety–from sources of data and models to tools that create them (including our personal favorite, piktochart), you can almost certainly find something to use in your classroom that’s not too pricey, that works for your grade level, and that isn’t blacked by your district’s incredibly frustrating filter.
