Are infographics worth a 1,000 words?

Especially for visual learners, infographics may hold the key to helping students understand difficult concepts.  Michele Haiken has written a blog titled: "A Picture is Worth 1,000 Gigabytes:  Creating Infographics with Middle School Students," which is posted on the Free Technology for Teachers site. 


Infographics combine images and words to tell a story or create a graphic on a specific topic.  The blog includes links to infographic examples as well as links to sites where students can register to creat their own infographics.


Have you used infographics in your teaching?  What was the students' response to this type of project?  Please share your thoughts on this technology tool.
