When students design an infographic they visualize data and present their research in a dynamic way. They can use icons, charts, shapes, stylized fonts, borders, photos, and more to make data more engaging and understandable. Students can also tell a story with numbers. They are sharing with others their interpretation of statistics, queries, facts, and survey data to tell a bigger story. The web tools below will get you started with free templates students can quickly edit.
