Eight Free tools for Teachers to Make Awesome Infographics

Information graphics which are the visual representation of data known as infogographics are making rounds online these days. It seems like web users are favouring this form of content format over other forms. Their  visually attractive display, the bright and shiny colours they  include are what make out of them an appealing means of communication. I personally like them because I find them factually interesting, to the point, and easy on eyes. I have devoted a whole section in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning  to the educational infographics I find online. Anyway today I am sharing with you tools that you can use to make your own infographics. Check out the list below.

  1. Hello,
    Thanks for featuring Creately in the list. Creately has many other diagram types like KWL charts, Venn diagrams perfect for teaching in the classroom. Our real-time collaboration features make it possible for students and teachers to work together real-time as well.
    Another one I would consider adding to the list is the Google public data explorer ( http://www.google.com/publicdata/directory ) . Not the easiest to figure out but have some cool features and public data ready for you to use.
