Plan:

* why do I need to know this: it is a trending quick and effective way to visualize numbers (stats)
* what is my assignment: create a MEANINGFUL infographic
* how I will be evaluated: assess the infographic and your strategy to make it public

– why infographics matter. Why is it more then just another alternative to PowerPoint

– what is an infographic: a portmanteau of information + graphic

– what are the cloud-based tools: Pictochart, Easilly and Infogram

– why are stats so important for infographics

– where are the stats to be found for the infographics
