In this fast-paced world of instant access to information, infographics have become popular for displaying statistics and facts.
Take advantage of this trend to give your students a great visual tool!
After seeing this format of informational displays all over pinterest, I noticed that most of the available infographics were used persuasively.
I saw plenty of environmental and political data as well as great stats for a wide variety of topics. I decided to start putting together some educational infographics that could be used in the classroom to display content.
Math students LOVE having these as a reference. They are so helpful for my visual learners.
I have also collected some sites and tools that will help you and your students to develop some great infographics and start taking advantage of this idea right away!
One way to incorporate infographics into your classroom is to assign your students a short project in which they develop their own infographic. This works great in any subject area and is a great way to integrate technology education into your curriculum. You can offer this as one option when you differentiate using a choice board or you can require all students to make an infographic.
You can give a very specific list of what must be included within the topic or allow students a little more freedom. Here are a few samples:
Here are some sites and tools that your students can use:
* Piktochart (a free tool for designing infographics)
* Easel.ly (a free tool for original content)
* Classroom Clipart (free images for students to use)
Note: These are NOT for commercial use. Please make sure each is appropriate for your students and grade level before using.
Another option is to create an infographic yourself and print it for students.
You can place any information that you feel is most important for them to remember about each topic.
Students really love having these as study guides.
They can remember the concepts because they can visualize the way that the infographic presented the information.
