Visualizing data is sometimes the best way to effectively communicate your message especially when it comes to complex data that requires a lot of explanation. There are several tools you can use to create visualizations in the form of charts, graphs, diagrams and posters. Some examples include Infogram, Canva, PiktoChart, Google Draw and Sheets, Lucidchart and many more. However, if you are looking for ready-made charts that you can simply download and repurpose for your own teaching situation, Chart Chooser is a great place to start with.
Chart Chooser from Juice Labs offers a wide variety of pre-made charts that you can download and use for free. These include: Pie chart, Bullet bar chart, line chart, bubble chart, column chart, and many more. You can use the search filter to look for charts for both PowerPoint and Excel. You can refine your search by targeting charts in a specific category from the 6 categories featured there (e.g comparison, distribution, composition, trend, relationship, and table). Once you find the chart you want to use, hover your mouse over it and click on download and there you go. Enjoy
