Infographics can have many uses in the classroom. Instructors can make syllabi less textual and more visual or they can present material in a new, appealling way. On the other hand, students can use inforgraphics to show understanding of a text or concept. You could ask them to create an infographic that explains the relationship between characters or how a grammatical concept like adjective agreement works in the language you teach. They’re also a great way to have students create mini-presentations on a cultural topic or something they’ve researched.
There are several tools for creating online infographics, but the LCLC reccommends
- Canva (https://www.canva.com/)
- Piktochart (https://piktochart.com/)
- Venngage (https://venngage.com/)
Each site is free and offers a library of templates or the ability to design your own using the built-in library of icons, pictures, and backgrounds.
