Eight Free tools for Teachers to Make Awesome Infographics ~ Educational Technology and... - 0 views

  • nformation graphics which are the visual representation of data known as infogographics are making rounds online these days. It seems like web users are favouring this form of content format over other forms.

I personally like them because I find them factually interesting, to the point, and easy on eyes. I have devoted a whole section in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning  to the educational infographics I find online. Anyway today I am sharing with you tools that you can use to make your own infographics. Check out the list below.
