“In the history classroom we are always developing visual literacy. Between analyzing primary source documents like photographs, paintings and advertisements, and interacting with charts and graphs, we constantly ask students to understand the ways images communicate.

Infographics work in the classroom because they grab students and allow an entry point to learning — and because they sum up pages and pages, even chapters, of information that would take a reader hours to process.” Read more here.

Three sources for creating infographics:

1. piktochart

2. infogr.am 

3. visual.ly
