Using infographics with your learners

Infographics present information in a visual format, which makes it easier to understand and remember. ESOL specialist Rachel Öner has put together a super collection of infographics for you to use with your learners.

Infographics are visual representations of information, data or knowledge that aim to present complex information quickly. They can be a useful tool in teaching as they can help make information more accessible, memorable and engaging for students. Here are a few ways in which they can be used in the classroom:

  • Summarizing information: they can be used to condense and simplify large amounts of information, making it easier for students to understand and retain.
  • Visualizing concepts: they can help bring abstract concepts to life by representing them in a visual and interactive format.
  • Comparing and contrasting information: they can be used to visually compare and contrast different ideas, making it easier for students to understand complex relationships and patterns.
  • Enhancing engagement: they can be more visually appealing than traditional text-based presentations, helping to keep students engaged and focused during lessons.
  • Supporting learning across multiple modalities: they can provide a combination of visual and written information, helping students who learn best through different modalities to grasp the material more effectively.
  • Incorporating infographics into lesson plans can help make lessons more effective and memorable for students.

It’s important to note that not all information is well suited for presentation in an infographic, and it’s important to use this tool effectively to enhance understanding and learning.
