What is an infographic???

An inforgraphic is an interactive chart or poster that is easily manipulated to beautifully display the data you want.

Think: Leader in Me notebook graphs = stunning parent- student conference (especially when the student inputs the data on the infographic chart!).

 

Yes ma’am, Johhny did that!

Yes sir, Sara knows her stuff!

Think: Students did an online poll and want to show off their data.

Think: Students engaged with learning percentages and chats.

Think: Interactive (student created even) MAPS

Think: Research data, Analyzing data, DATA being FUN!

What does one of these things look like?
