Bloggers, journalists, and really anyone in the news-publishing biz all know that infographics are a great way to present large chunks of data in a way that will inform and entertain their readers/watchers. But that group is not the only one that can benefit from infographics.
- The Educators. More and more teachers are beginning to create infographics for use in the classroom. Visualization is one of the best teaching methods, and infographics and diagrams are invaluable educational tools. Plus, with all the free online infographic creators available, it’s a lot easier on the budget than markers and posterboard.
- The Educatees. On the flip side, students of all ages are turning to infographics as key elements in presentations and reports. Albert Einstein said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Show me a student with an infographic they can explain to the class, and I’ll show you a satisfied teacher.
- The Presenters. And, naturally, the realm of presentations is not the sole domain of students in a classroom. Corporate meetings include presentations as well, and often more than one. A quick visit to an online infographic creator for some easily-downloaded and eye-catching infographic templates can keep the board from getting too bored.
No matter your reason, no matter your audience, infographics can make the information you present easier for your readers to absorb and understand. Online infographic creators exist are available through free accounts and through paid memberships, and creation software is available as freeware, shareware, or purchased downloads. With so many options, there’s no reason not to use infographics in your next presentation. Your audience will definitely thank you.
