Infographics as a Learning Strategy for the More Visual Student

INFOGRAPHICS

WHAT ARE THEY, HOW CAN THEY BE USED FOR TEACHING/LEARNING, AND HOW ARE THEY USED FOR ASSESSMENT OF DEEP LEARNING & APPLICATION/CREATION ?


This is a great summary video by Kathy Schrock showing how Infographics can be used as a creative and visual assessment in the classroom. This video sums up everything I have been trying to say.


EdWeb: Infographics as a Creative Assessment from Kathy Schrock



Infographics are a GREAT VISUAL TOOL to help students REALLY UNDERSTAND how to SUMMARIZE data, information, or WHATEVER! They have to THINK VERY CRITICALLY to do so! (Businesses are REALLY using these.) How can I show a lot of information or data about _____ with pictures in a creative way??? - I am trying to work on one, and it is NOT easy!

The kids who are into computers and graphics, will love this ! GROUP WORK OF ANY KIND goes hand in hand with this! I can see this working great in Biology, Language, Math of all Kinds, and every other subject!!!



An AMAZING example of an animated infographic!
This is a very complicated, professional infographic, but it is very COOL. The students would enjoy this one, alot!

DIFFERENT ONLINE SITES TO BUILD OR LEARN ABOUT INFOGRAPHICS

1⃣ VISUALLY



2. Info.gram

This is a wonderful site (has a free version, but to access the best stuff, you have to update to premium). It has lots of layouts to choose from and graphics to add, along with tutorials and instructions. It also now includes the following game, called Eyewire, which helps players understand neural networks (hopefully) by playing, along with infographics.

The guy talking in the video at the bottom is the author of Connectome: How the brain's wiring makes us who we are - he may tell you that, but I cannot hear what he is saying because I have the volume down so I do not wake anyone up - it is early morning (best time to get ANYTHING DONE) and I dare not wake a soul! I recognize his name, however.
