This last week I attended iCiL and a session on infographics. This is something that I have seen more and more of lately. In fact just tonight I ran across this: 10 Free Web Tools To Make Your Own Infographics on modernlessons.com.
I love the visualization! It is a feast for your eyes!
This is one of the images that excited me: http://www.fablevision.com/new/eduflash_archives_july10.html
So many other curricular applications exist! Also very easy to create as I discovered from the session and the Modern Lessons Course.
Here is a link to the iCiL presenter's wiki resource: http://infographicsineducation.wikispaces.com/
