Visual aides such as infographics, videos, charts, and other images are a great way to quickly grasp key concepts of important topics. I’m a fan of infographics and, judging by the response on Edudemic, you’re a fan too. While infographics aren’t exhaustive or authoritative, they’re useful ways to quickly introduce key concepts to a large group of people. But why is that? What’s the science behind it all? Did you know that there are actually more than a dozen reasons your brain craves infographics? That’s at least the idea behind an awesome new (what else?) infographic that was just sent my way.
The new infographic was just published a few minutes ago and is a full-page interactive infographic by the folks at Neomam. I embedded the static version of the infographic (boring, but works on school computers young and old) below but strongly encourage you to click here to view the interactive HTML5 version.
