One of the greatest misconceptions in education today is that certain teachers have a higher natural aptitude in technology than others.
This inspirationalgraphic sets out to disprove that notion and remind the audience that external skills are only a function of the internal dispositions that allowed them to grow.
When looking around, I noticed that there were a few teaching resources for the CRAP/CARP design principles (contrast, repetition, alignment and proximity), but most of them were made for middle and high school students.
I therefore created a poster intended for elementary students, although it probably can be used by any age. I think it’s important that we develop visual communication skills early on, as there’s really no reason for students not to learn them. Humanity shouldn’t have to wait until middle school for students to be effective visual communicators.
This was my first infographic, and it is the product of what I learned most recently at Learning 2.0. I would like to thank Ray Gentleman and Heather Dowd for their help and guidance on that day.
