Introducing Students to Infographics

Thinking about layout and design

Bill Ferriter has some great ideas for helping students learn to creat Infographics. While his plan doesn't use technology per se, it could easily be adapted. The focus here is on organizing information rather than finding it. ("Finding" could be part one to this activity.)

"My students have to think about layout and design. They've got to find ways to organize the content that I've assembled for them.  They've got to make sure that their infographic isn't cluttered and that they use text features to create clear visual divisions in their final products."
