“Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends. Similar pursuits are information visualization, data visualization, statistical graphics, information design, or information architecture. Infographics have evolved in recent years to be for mass communication, and thus are designed with fewer assumptions about the readers knowledge base than other types of visualizations.”
I have collected a number of resourceful infographics for Computer Applications Technology and Information Technology teachers to use for their students. It helps to place our subjects and the content we cover in perspective and context. Also, the visual aspect of an infographic enhances the delivery of information.
