Hidden Messages: Using Infographics

“Make information beautiful” is my favorite infographic design tool’s slogan. Piktochart’s phrase really conveys the core purpose of the infographic.

In addition to summarizing information beautifully, the infographic is a place to insert subtle but important messages about the writing process. Small but highly supportive messages can be integrated throughout the informative image. Similar to a sticker, post it note or a stamp, infographic design offers a huge selection of icons and decorated text boxes that can be placed anywhere on the image.

Though I don’t rely on the infographic for entire lessons, an infographic is a successful supplement for the purpose of review, reminders and conveying the “big picture.” Additionally, hopefully as you can see in the image above, an infographic is a space to sneak in tiny motivators and confidence boosters that students might not be as receptive to or open to verbally.
