20 Infographic Sites to Enhance Your Classroom

 

infographic wordleThanks to the Internet, anyone with a cell phone can not only find, but disseminate information to anywherefrom anywhere—in the world within seconds.

Most of us would agree that having unlimited access to free information is a good thing, but I, for one, am on information overload—and whether or not they know it, so are many of our students. As teachers, we must successfully negotiate theory and information with our students and show them how to put these concepts into practice. But in order for this to happen, we need to help them break down complicated concepts so that they are digestible, not simply “memorizable.”

For those of us that are visually oriented, infographics are a fine solution to this information overload or what infographic guru and TED lecturer David McCandless calls, “info glut.” Why? They help us visualize information, detect patterns, make connections and breakdown complex ideas in a way that tells a story. An added bonus is that they allow us to focus only on the information that is important. It doesn’t hurt that they look pretty cool, too.  

We’ve blogged about free infographic generators to help you enhance your lectures and supplement your classroom activities, but since you’re busy (as all teachers are), we thought we’d share 20 of our favorite infographic databases where you can browse and download FREE, user-created graphics related to just about anything you can imagine.

I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the opinions that this is working for you as well. My kind regards.
