21 Top Presentation Tools for Teachers - More Than A Tech For years, PowerPoint reigned supreme as presentation software of choice for just about everyone, including teachers and students. In recent years though, upstarts like Prezi showed us that there was more than one way to move through traditional slides. We complied a list of 21 of the best presentation apps for educators. Sure, you’ll see some old favorites, but we’re sure there are at least a few on this list you’ve never heard of. Everyone is looking for different features and options when creating a presentation. For that reason, we chose not to give these tools a “rank”.

New Library Infographics: 1930′s style Library Infographics: 1930′s style Nowadays, the visualization of data is all the rage. It seems each new study or piece of research is turned into an image. Top 10 Online Tools to Create Infographics Infographics have become extremely popular online tools to create a compelling visualization. Imagine the difference in conveying the beauty of Irises by telling someone about them vs showing them the Iris painting by Van Gogh. There is a world of difference in an image and how much information it can pass through to the viewer. Infographics convey a message much more effectively than a stand alone written article or photo.

Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics.

DataViz DataViz Mediaeater MMX Archive / RSS June 21 (Source: thedailywhat) May 26 46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom 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.
