Abstract

Our students are grazers, according to 2012 Pew Research Study. They skim and scan for information online, prioritizing visual resources, like infographics, that quickly provide key details on a topic. By using infographics as reading and composing tools, we can support and improve these digital literacy practices. This session will include sample infographics, analysis tools, graphic organizers, and writing assignments.
