Category: Edtech

Infographics: they pack facts and stats with colorful visuals; the best ones teach you something in a quick and alluring way. That’s why I’m digging this website: elearninginfographics.com. It curates some of the most informative infographics on topics including edtech, e-learning (blended and mobile learning, distance education, instructional design), MOOCs (massive open online courses), school (from preschool to adult education), gamification and social learning. There are so many, I stopped counting after 100. But, I picked three recent ones that I think the DML community might find useful.

This one gives a timeline on education’s evolution from the chalkboard classroom to virtual reality field trips:

This one offers pointers on how to teach using Twitter:

And, this one features the results of a survey that asked teachers about technology in their classrooms:
