Using Infographics with Students

Call me silly, but I'm so excited! I now have 70 followers. I'm always excited when I visit my site and see that I have new followers. I guess building my PLN on Twitter also helps build my blog followers.

I've been seeing a lot of infographics pinned on Pinterest and I just pass them by. But this week I started thinking about how these could be used in the classroom. So I started pinning them myself. I found this post about Creating Infographics with Students and I think I've hit the jackpot! I can see myself using this with my students next year to help them organize data.

I also found a great post about infographics on Integrating Infographics into the iClassroom. This is the first infographic that really got me thinking about using them in the classroom.


Last year my students used Glogster and they loved it, but I think this might be a good tool to start with creating infographics with my students. I also found http://www.easel.ly/, which is another site where you can make infographics.

My wonderful PLN (thanks @flyonthecwall) also shared these links with me that you might want to check out if you are also thinking of using infographics in the classroom:

So I'd love to hear if any of you use infographics in your classroom. If you do, how do you use them? What do you use to create them?
