Infographic development process explained
Review existing learning resources?
Infographic planning must begin with existing learning resources. An infographic is simply a visual representation of the written text. Organised content found in existing learning resources will ensure creating an infographic is more efficient and productive. The content is normally a workbook, or a PowerPoint slide. Organised content contains heading and subheadings which represent concepts to be learn. It is these concepts that will be transformed into infographics.
Review text, tables, diagrams, and figures
Ultimately any information can be transformed into an infographic, but the text still needs to be chosen carefully. Existing learning resources should have range of concepts that build an understanding of the main concept. If the text is organised with heading and subheadings, it will be easy to transform concepts into an infographic. Tables, diagrams and figures already have this concept hierarchy structure in place which is why they are ideal to transform into an infographic.
Transfer information to an infographic
Once the information to transfer to the infographic has been selected, the infographic creation process begins. The type of infographic will need to be chosen.
Static infographic – is a stationary picture that presents a concept to learn in the form of a graphic, chart, table, diagram or other visual element.
Animated infographic – animates the main concepts via moving images, illustrations, or any form of graphic.
