  • Hi Stephanie, thanks for this very useful presentation. I totally agree that infographics allow you to make complex information simple and digestible. Hence, it is perfect for making students understand their lessons in difficult subjects. For the teachers out there who wanted to make infographics easily, they can utilize various tools to do so. The most easy to use one is the InfographiCreator.com. Buttons are self-explanatory and you get the needed output in PDF or PNG format. Check their website here: http://infographicreator.com/
