Social Media for Learning

I am a very visual learner and absorber of information. I use images rather than bullet points in my presentations to recall information. Recently when I was talking about this I mentioned how much I liked infographics. This term was not known by my colleague and when I explored further others were also unfamilair with the term.

An infographic is a visual way to represent data and is usually presented in a poster format. It a nice way to present sometimes complex information in an interesting way that is easy to digest. A well known example is the London Underground map.
