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

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)
