Introduction

I think you get the picture now, so let's get rolling. It is time for you to design your infographic!


Key Vocabulary:

Infographic: a visual image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data

Sequence: a particular order in which related events, movements, or things follow each other


Steps:
 

1. Start this Quest by watching this helpful video clip and then visit easel.ly.

2. To continue, register for a free account. This will allow you to save and share your work. 

3. Now that you are registered, let's get down to business. Your task is to design an infographic that presents a topic of interest in a simple, creative and visual way. Check with your teacher to see if you are creating this infographic for the Science Mythbusters Quest or creating your infographic for another purpose. Are you up for the task? Check out the details below and then get started!


Completing this Quest

Your teacher will tell you where to place your infographic. If you are putting it in your PhotoPeach it will be available to view as part of your slideshow. You may be asked to embed your infographic on Edmodo or on your digital portfolio page. There is also a link you can email to your teacher if asked to do so. If you email, you might want to include a message of thanks to your teacher for providing yet another opportunity to flex your techno-creative muscle!

A TIP for you: infographics can be used in a variety of learning environments. You might find yourself creating them in your social studies class for U.S. History to sequence events, in your science class to represent data from experiments or research, or in your math class to display statistics. COOL!
