Finding Good Education Infographics

Infographics are helpful for those of us who are visual learners. I use them to help explain concepts (see Education Hashtags in Twitter). I have played with Infogr.am (see Creating an Infographic) and Piktochart (see Considering Another Infographic Creation Tool) to create my own. Collections of pre-made infographics can also be found.

Mia MacMeekin at An Ethical Island uses infographics in the courses she teaches. She shares those and other infographics on her blog. Her infographics are organized into these categories:
  • courses I teach,
  • my workshops and such,
  • online learning,
  • student success,
  • teacher,
  • teaching anyone, and
  • team.

Find more education infographics on e-Learning Infographics

The eLearning Infographics site is "user-generated" and "dedicated to the best education infographics" according to Christopher Pappas. Creators of education infographics are invited to submit their work for consideration. (Note that submitted infographics may reflect bias toward an organization's products.) The categories that are supported are:
  • gamification infographics,
  • MOOC infographics,
  • mobile learning infographics,
  • social learning infographics,
  • special education infographics,
  • adult education infographics,
  • distance education infographics,
  • educational technology,
  • preschool infographics,
  • K12 infographics,
  • higher education infographics,
  • continuing education infographics,
  • elearning infographics,
  • instructional design infographics,
  • teacher infographics, and
  • student infographics.

Where else might we find infographics to use?

Pinterest provides many examples of infographics (http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=infographic).

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has a very good collection of educational infographics (http://www.educatorstechnology.com/search/label/inforgraphic).


If you are using infographics with your students, you will appreciate Kathy Schrock's video, Infographics as a Creative Assessment. It is an outstanding lesson in the use of infographics with students.


What are your sources for infographics that you can use for teaching and learning?
