Infographics are very useful for telling a story, reporting numbers and facts, visualizing a timeline, creating awareness to a problem, or reporting a problem and proposing a solution for that problem. It has been my experience that an infographic does an excellent job of helping readers understand a problem and its solution.
Infographics are excellent marketing tools in our increasingly visual world. These information packed graphics are pinned and repinned on Pinterest with entire boards dedicated to the collection of infographics.
I utilized an infographic assignment with my International Tourism students as the final "capstone" demonstration of their comprehension of one or more of the topics covered in the class.
The final project this semester requests that the students create an educational infographic that summarized their blog theme as related to one of the course topics. As illustrated above, the infographic may illicit support for the concept of sustainability with actions anyone could take to save the clouded leopard.
