Infographics: Applications for the Classroom

Looking for new ways to generate classroom discussions?  Infographics can be a good source of discussion and student learning.  By creating their own infographics, students will gain experience organizing data and research.  For some great examples of how to use infographics in the classroom, take a look at the Cool Infographics Pinterest page.

Randy Krum's Cool Infographics blog also provides some interesting commentary about what makes an effective info graphic.  The Learning Network of the New York Times is another great resource to check out as well.
