Om School Library Infographics: How to Crea
Infographics have become increasingly popular educational tools for visually conveying ideas and information-in class projects, in daily lessons, and for promoting school and library programs. This book-the only one of its kind-helps you create your own computer- generated visuals for your class and library using common software platforms and free web-based applications. A perfect primer for educators with little or no technological savvy, this resource features charts, tables, screenshots, bars, and graphs for making infographics easy to reproduce and create. Author Peggy Milam Creighton discusses the benefits of utilizing visuals with students and provides tips and strategies for creating your own graphics for various educational settings. The reference is organized into three topics: how to create infographics with Microsoft software such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint; how to use graphics to support school library programs; and why using these visual-based learning tools is important. The work features easy-to-use tutorials, lesson plans, and project ideas for students.
