Infographics

Infographics are exploding! If you haven't created one yet, put it on your TO DO list.  Infographics are 30% more likely to be read than text alone!  I used Piktochart and had my students create one.  Why? My students are future teachers and they will be creating for their students. Did this take some of my students outside their comfort zone, yes! But they were glad to have had the experience and I was proud that they developed new skills!

Why and where do they fit for you?


1. Search infographics on a subject or theme for your class
