Over the past few months, we’ve been developing a range of infographics covering common case studies in geography. The infographics provide a summary overview of the main features of each case study and are available as A3 PDFs and resizable .png graphics. The infographics can be printed for wall displays, collated into revision booklets and sent home with students to decorate their bedroom walls for revision.
Infographics often prove so effective in educational contexts because they use imagery to highlight, explain, or enhance text-based information. They have the unique ability to capture attention, convey information, and encourage data retention despite their complex nature.
Following a recent request from an Internet Geography Plus subscriber, we’ve just created an infographic covering Hurricane Matthew. We’ve made this available to download for free below.
