Today as I was curating a list of tools to use for creating infograhics in class, I came across this interesting visual created by Anethicalisland. The visual provides a succinct overview of what infographics are, reasons to use them in class, and some of the benefits behind using them in instruction. For instance, using infographics for learning is supported by research done in different areas including Bloom’s taxonomy, brain studies, and Gagne events. Read on to learn more about the importance of infographics and stay tuned for a post that I will share later today featuring some great web tools to use with students to create educational infographics.
