In a Galaxy, Far Far Away…had Darth Vader only used infographics the Empire might not be so misunderstood.
Infographics can help students (and aspiring Sith Lords) understand data and be used to tell a story. We live in an age where data is contemporary currency. Not only understanding where to locate good data but also how to interpret it and use data to tell a story are essential skills all students need. This edWebinar shows educators how to identify components of infographics, locating and using data, images and design elements, and resources to explore. Literacy strategies are shared, including media mentors and comprehension strategies, to promote the consumption and creation of infographics in your classroom.
This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to kindergarten through higher education teachers, librarians, technology coaches, and school and district leaders.
