Infographics are an important educational resource in any classroom because they present information in a visual manner that’s engaging, memorable, and easy to understand. According to statistics, infographics increase learning and information retention by 78%, while the use of color in these visuals makes readers 80% more motivated to read the content.
One of the main reasons why infographics allow us to excel in this way is because we’re literally wired to react to images and color better. After all, 50% of the human brain is used for processing visual information alone!
Creating infographics for your classroom can be time-consuming, but thankfully, we’ve done the hard work for you. With our numerous Infographic templates, you can create your very own in just a few quick clicks!
3 Infographics to Suit Every Classroom Topic
When you access the Infographic Maker, you'll notice a wide variety of styles and designs to suit your every need. Once you select your template, you can simply swap out the existing elements, such as the imagery, text, or color scheme, to make it your own.
To show you how easy it is to customize an Infographic template, we’ve included three different examples below. They may just inspire the next infographic for your classroom!
1. The Visual Chart
The power of the infographic lies within its ability to present information visually, at a glance. This is why infographics are perfect for representing charts which allow students to familiarize themselves with, or compare, different items.
As you can see in this example, we’ve swapped out the template’s existing images of flowers to represent the different bears of North America, thus switching up the topic entirely. With a simple color scheme change and some added bear graphics from the Graphic Library, we’ve created a unique infographic in just minutes.
2. The Step-by-Step Process
Often in class, students will learn about the step-by-step process of an event or how to perform a specific action. Infographics are also perfect for this method of learning, as they allow students to consume the information in bite-sized pieces, as well as in chronological order. The addition of corresponding visuals also boosts their motivation to read the information, as well as their comprehension.
In this example, we’ve swapped out the process of baking an apple pie with information relating to the Big Bang Theory. It was as simple as changing the color scheme, editing the text, and dragging and dropping new images into place.
3. The Historical Timeline
We’ve covered subjects such as the environment and science, so now let’s look at how BeFunky’s Infographic Templates can be used for history topics. Infographics are also a fantastic way to visually present timelines, helping students to absorb, understand, and memorize key dates better.
Rather than presenting information in slabs of text, students can see the most important dates and events at-a-glance, along with eye-catching imagery and colors. Take this template, for example, which features a bold background image and bright yellow text boxes. By simply changing the text and background image, we were able to turn the existing template into a historical timeline about space – all within a few clicks!
Make Your Own Classroom Infographics
In the past, producing infographics was time-consuming, as it meant designing all content from scratch. Thanks to our pre-made templates, however, creating infographics has never been easier! Just tweak the elements you wish to change, and you’ll have a professional-looking design for your classroom in no time.
Create your own infographic and provide some unique, visual learning opportunities to your students!
