    Infographics for fun

  • Infographics in the ESL ClassroomKos and Sims (2014) used digital infographics instead of having students write an essay in their classes, and discovered these advantages:1) Visually appealing; allow students to be creative2) Student-motivated and student-driven in terms of

    interests3) Allow students to think critically about writing;

    leveling the playing field

  • How Infographics Can Be Used in the Classroom

    Peachey (2016) Summarize (or research) content in a visual form Reading comprehension (answer or create questions

    based on an infographic) Analyze or compare infographics in terms of

    effectiveness or accuracy Explain processes or rules (a new process that students

    create or a historical event or scientific experiment)

  • Suggestions for Implementing Digital Infographics in Classroom

    and why we use them Technological capabilities of your students and yourself
