The Anatomy Of An Infographic: 5 Steps To Create A Powerful Visual

The Anatomy Of An Infographic: 5 Steps To Create A Powerful Visual | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Information is very powerful but for the most bit it is bland and unimaginative. Infographics channel information in a visually pleasing, instantly understandable manner, making it not only powerful, but extremely beautiful. Once used predominantly to make maps more approachable, scientific charts less daunting and as key learning tools for children, inforgraphics have now permeated all aspects of the modern world.

pity we cannot create our own puzzles. This kills creativity (ie if it's only one person dealing with the generator)

Create a To Do List

Create a To Do List | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Use this tool to create a list of learning goals and make sure you stick to them. Most people keep their todo lists on pieces of paper (which has its upsides!) But many other people have found it useful to have their todo list on their computer as well. They spend much of the day working on their computer, so it is always there - paper can easily get misplaced - or sometimes you forget to bring your list with you when you leave.

Wow, this is a simple yet very powerful cloze generator--thanks for sharing this! Interactive file is a single html document, very portable. My one quibble is that there is no option for uniform gaps in the generator--can be remedied in an html editor, but rather tedious to do every time...

Create a digital scrapbook with Skrappy for iPad | TiPb | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
If you’re a scrapbooking fan, Skrappy will not disappoint. If you’re not a scrapbooking fan, Skrappy just might turn you into one. It is very robust, runs great, and is so much more enjoyable than the traditional way of cutting paper, handling glue, and realizing you need to redo a page because you’ve misspelled a word.
