    1. personalize learning infographic

      This is not quite what it sounds like. It is a Pinterest style page with links to assorted articles that relate to personalized learning, most of which are presented in an infographic. It is sufficiently useful if one has the patience to click through to the infographics. Usability is satisfactory although the top half of the page is taken up with graphics that are not directly related to the content. rating 3/5

    1. teachthought This particular page is entitled '20 simple assessment strategies you can use every day' but the reason it is listed here is because the page itself serves as a jumping off point for reviewing or learning about many educational theories and principles. This site may have been designed for K-12 teachers - I am not sure, but it is quite usable for those who teach adults. This is a place to come if you are interested in browsing - not if you have a specific thing you need at the moment. Rating 3/5

    1. The effectiveness of infographics, or any other form of communication, can be measured in terms of whether people:

      • pay attention to it
      • understand it
      • remember it later

      Titles are important. Ideally, the title should concisely state the main point you want people to grasp.

      Recall of both labels and data can be improved by using redundancy -- text as well as images. For example:

      • flags in addition to country names
      • proportional bubbles in addition to numbers.
