This looks really interesting! I try to provide an infographic version for certain concepts that I cover in my ESL class. I've also provided it as an option for how students can show their understanding of a topic, in addition to some of the more common ways like prose or speeches.
However, I will admit that I am still a novice in creating them. I've registered and can't wait to hear how others are using infographics.
YAY! See you then!
I'm a novice at creating them too, Erin. I discovered them as an assessment of learning during Spring term when I took classes with an instructor who asked us to create summarizing infographics for a specific number of units within the course. They were an interesting challenge for me. I appreciated the amount of clarity required to communicate all the necessary info in a limited space.
Rebecca, I've seen the graphics you can create in Canva, and I'm super impressed. I imagine your infographics would be brilliant.
I've been surprised by how much practice it has taken, but I do love them as a medium. Thanks for your kind words. Honestly, the templates are doing the lion's share of the work.
