Literature Infographics for the classroom

This is a great collection of visual presentations for language arts and library teachers.

Here’s just one of many, many examples:

Do you love infographics as much as I do?

Have you thought about having your class create some infographics but are not sure where to start?

Easel.ly is a free online space that makes infographic creation easy.

It’s still in beta right now, so there may not be as many bells and whistles as you might like, but it is an engrossing way to spend time presenting information.

Diagrams, Flowcharts, Graphs

Looking for a great online tool for students who need to create visual aids for their presentations?

https://www.lucidchart.com/ is a tool that works with Google apps. Students can create and save flowcharts and diagrams to their Google drive in order to collaborate online on the project.

Another great tool is Create-a-Graph, from NCES. Students can choose bar, Line, Pie, Area, or XY graphs to create and then add them to their presentations easily.  Highly recommended.

Spicynodes: A visual and interactive option for classroom projects

SpicyNodes is an interactive mind map creator that allows students to explore any topic by clicking on the different information boxes. It took me a minute or two to get it, but the gallery includes an interactive poetry creator that I just loved. This is a tool that will work in any classroom. Check out the gallery to see what I mean.
