Creating InfoGraphics with Kathy Schrock


Info graphics as a creative assessment!
They are NOT posters!

LATCH Model of organizing information -
Location
Alphabet
Time
Category
Hierarchy

"data visualization"

USA today snapshots (book on info graphics)
Flowtown
Scrollyfox in firefox is an add on that lets you scroll down when presenting or viewing.
Theydrawandcook  Theydrawandtravel - sites that use inforgraphics
snagajob.com
pictochart
easl.ly
inforgr.am
visualize ipad app

chart chooser - program online
many eyes - site by IBM - upload in cvs format and they will create info graphic

Process:
  1. develop a good question
  2. research process
  3. hand drawing rough draft to be approved
  4. start computer/ipad work for info graphic
Perfect time to teach kids about Creative Commons!!! (or advanced google search or advanced search in Flickr!)  YAY - We are already doing this!!

Great post! Going to share some info with my staff this month about infogr.am! I'm anxious to try this tool with student collaboration...it's something that will give an opportunity for more creativity I think!
