After reading this journal article, I have officially found a new teaching strategy that I will implement in my classroom. Infographics is an amazing way for teachers and students to display and learn about data in the classroom. I thought that giving the students freedom to choose what they wanted to research data on was a fantastic idea. It keeps the students involved and they can learn about a topic that interests them. Then, on top of that, infographics makes it that much more fun for students to present their data. Students are now introduced to presentations other than just a PowerPoint that make it easier for not only the presenter, but the viewer to understand and take away from. The rubric and assessment for the students is also clear and allows them to use their imagination to display specific data as long as it is displayed. I agree 100% that representational thinking is important for students to learn and master, and I am glad that I found this article to help with that!

This is the secind of two articles on snug infographics to support the development of data visualization. This article focuses on embedding infographics in classroom instruction. I would suggest reading this in conjunction with the previous article. The resource list provided in the preceding article is especially useful.

I love this article. For years the term, “infographic” has been tossed around and no one could ever really explain it to me in a way where I could find benefit of incorporating them in my middle school classroom.
Not only does this article clearly define what an infographic is, but presents ideas of how to use them at all grade levels. The author encourages us to begin by presenting a variety of infographics to students through a basic Google search on a topic that interests them. Once they have figured out what an infographic is and determined the elements of a good one, turn your students loose to create one of their own.
The author provides examples of three projects that utilized infographics. Especially powerful to me, “Students craft their displays in minutes rather than the hours it would take for a traditional poster. They can reformat and change their design elements almost instantly.” I am always searching for ways to integrate art in a meaningful way with my students. Infographics provide students with the opportunity to process knowledge in a whole new way.
