In this virtual workshop taking place on zoom, explore infographic design as a powerful experience for students to conduct research, represent data, communicate visually, utilize technology, and demonstrate their understanding. In the first half of the workshop, participants will learn about different types of infographics and design their own using free online software. In the second half, participants will build a lesson plan for an infographic project to use with their classes. Walk away with a customizable project toolkit, including handouts and a rubric, to use next year.
