Infographic Creation

Infographics are a great way to share data and statistics information
visually and are super popular these days. 
{An inforgraphic is a graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge.}

Here is a fabulous animated infographic that explains the 
13 reasons why your brain craves infographics
and a few of my favorite educational technology infographics can be found here. 

In addition to being a great way to share information with students, 
they can be created BY students to understand and
 connect their learning, vocabulary, and other info.  

How neat would it be to have students create their own for a research project
 they are doing instead of a traditional essay, poster, or powerpoint?
It could be a visual essay! 

Here are some great infographic creators that make the task super easy! 

Piktochart is a great online creator that allows you a
free account to make some basic infographics. 
There is even a discounted rate for educators that would like to go pro.  
Sign up is super quick and allows you to get started creating right away! 

Easelly is another great online infographic creator that allows 
you to start with a template and adjust it to fit your data.  
It's a great way to create an infographic without out starting totally from scratch! 

Infogram is my favorite of all three of these as it has lots of options 
and even allows you to upload your own data in an Excel document! 

Here's a fabulous tutorial video by Linda W. Braun showing
 how to use both Easelly and Inforgram!
