Pondering Thoughts of an Infographics Workshop

I have been exploring with the idea of creating an infographics workshops to assist educators and administrators with designing data sets to visually represent the content or the main point they are trying to portray when they are instructing students. As we know, the lecture style and pencil and paper classroom are quite boring- so we need to jazz up the instructional approach to meet the needs of today's diverse learners. But we also need to present information in a way that can be absorbed in smaller chuncks, so the endusers has a more personalized and manageable experience with the data or findings that are being presented.


I have been searching through a multitude of inforgraphics design programs and resources and have found many that are very intuitive and teacher friendly to utilize. If the technology resource or tool is not straight forward and simple to navigate and design through- up to 65% of educators will not find value in it or use it to support instruction- this is what I have found out with the many workshops I have offered. The one infographic resource I am going to showcase today is called Visualize.me and it allows an individual to create a professional development profile and resume of oneself.  Here is a sample I created through this link.   You can even get a tee-shirt made from it to support your marketing campaign or branding strategy.


Here is also a unique infographic just in time for Father's Day that may add a chuckle to his day. You can click on the graphic to make it larger so you can read the content.


If you are looking for other infographic resources,  I stumbled across this huge list titled "Over 100 Incredible Infographic Tools and Resources"the possibilities are endless.


Hope these resources will support your visual display of your next content message with students or adult learners.


Have a great weekend everyone!

I think you should also ponder on doing inforgraphics on mobile. A large percentage of people now owns Smartphones and it seems to be on its prime at the moment so it's better if you join the bandwagon to keep up.

2017 Beginning of the New Year: A Learning Discovery Escapade

The holiday break was very well needed and appreciated, and allowed for me to personally and professionally take a break from my education strategist job and relax with some amazing educational research articles to read- as they have been sitting on the back burner for a few months. Some topics of interest that have caught my interest and full attention is the most recent case studies on our student learning population of Generation Z. Yes, these are the kiddos born from 1995 -2010, and these are the young adults now entering the majestic years of college for the first time or are deeply engaged in a full-time job as their new career.


Did you now that these Gen Z students are completely different than Gen Y? Yet many of our k12 educators, and university professors are still teaching to the knowledge base of Gen Y, and have not caught up to the new learning needs and student interest of this dynamic population. Everything they are learning is through a multi-sensory and multi touch inte…

Smartboard Training at the University Level

This week I will be offering Smartboard trainings to our local universities. I have put together a link list of "adult learner" content sites that professors and instructional trainers can easily use with their college students to enrich their curriculum offerings. This is just a "starter list" and I will continue to add to this list as resources are found and shared from others from around the world. Thanks to my social network of Twitter friends for the development of the Smartboard resources as a true global team!
