Teaching With Infographics

If you are new to this blog, you might not have taken a look at all the tabs located at the top of the page. Under "Infographics" you will find resources from creation to examples by subject area. This past week I taught a few classes on infographics and decided to update the page by adding a section called "Teaching With Infographics". It is important for your students to make sure that they evaluate any infographics they are using, by making sure the author/creator has cited their references. Misinformation on the web exists. Have students read these tips to make a better infographic. Below is the new list which was added. NOTE: I found Piktochart to be an easy way for our students to make their own infographics, which is why there are many videos listed. You can find everything about infographics HERE.
