  2. What’s an Infographic? • Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly.[1][2] They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends. • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infographic

  3. Why Use Infographics? • FACT: Approximately 65 percent of the population are visual learners. - Mind Tools, 1998 • FACT: The brain processes visual information 60,000 faster than text. - 3M Corporation, 2001 • FACT: 90 percent of information that comes to the brain is visual. – Hyerle, 2000 • FACT: 40 percent of all nerve fibers connected to the brain are linked to the retina. – Jensen, 1996 • FACT: Visual aids in the classroom improve learning by up to 400 percent. - 3M Corporation, 2001 • FACT: Our eyes can register 36,000 visual messages per hour. – Jensen, 1996 • http://visualteachingalliance.com/

  6. Creating Infographics • Find and curate (select) information to present • Visualize that information--try to use non-text representations such as images, charts, graphs, numbers, and videos • Organize so that the reader progresses through the information in a way that helps them learn, build, or grow ideas • Read like a book--top to bottom, left to right • Read from center outward—big to small like a concept map

  7. Uses for Infographics • Teachers: • Present information visually • Activate or level background knowledge before a unit • Teach or practice visual literacy strategies • Students: • Demonstrate learning • Projects, assignments, multimedia essays
