    Interactive Infographics are online representations of information or data that usually allow the user to “interact” with it and the data that is visualized.  They’re generally created by newspapers for their websites, and often, though not always, are accessible to English Language Learners.   In fact,  they can be an exceptionally accessible way for ELL’s to learn complicated information that might ordinarily not be comprehensible.

    Integrating Infographics into the Math Classroom « techchef4u

    So TechChef4U has caught the Infographics Influenza! Being a bit of a Pinterest fanatic, I have found an easy way to support and feed my Infographics Habit. Continuing to stock pile Educational Infographics on my Pinterest board, I waited until I found an app-ortunity to share these resources with one of my teachers and create a delectable lesson. During my stint as an 8th Math tutor, I had a few of the teachers approach me about engaging math lessons that they could utilize with 8th Math after the STAAR test. I mentioned the topic of infographics and shared a few of the ones I had collected. Then I worked with one of the teachers in particular, Mrs. Simpson, to hash out the details.
