InfoGraphic Designs: Overview, Examples and Best Practices | Inspiration Information graphics or infographics are visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics are used where complex information needs to be explained quickly and clearly, such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. They are also used extensively as tools by computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians to ease the process of developing and communicating conceptual information.

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. 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.

I've already used it in my classes and in teacher training courses and here are some of the reasons why I'm so excited about it: - it's a neat tool for creating interactive and collaborative images in our classroom or as a homework task; - we / collaborators can tag images with any content (including videos, sounds and music from differnt sources) and then we can also share it (by email, in Facebook, Twitter, blog...); - the chosen images come alive not only with what you can tag but also by adding colourful pins. This school year I'm teaching a Tourism and Hospitality class and as far as possible I've been trying to develop materials that can somehow be useful to them or even to the community. I took pics in Soure and produced this video and, in class, I shared this Thinglink (below) - a map of Soure and its twelve civil parishes - so that learners could tag with relevant content. Now, how is it done?
