I have been introducing infographics to middle school students using easelly. This tool is very simple to use and easy navigate. With easelly you can upload images, add and format objects, add shapes and text boxes, create your own theme or modify an existing theme. The best feature is, the students do not need to sign up for an account. Once they completed their infographic, they can use a screen capture tool, such as, Windows Snipping Tool, Jing, or Screen-o-matic, to save their infographic.
Windows Snipping tool is an application that comes with Windows 7. It should be in your accessories folder, if not, you can perform a search from the start menu and Windows will find it. Jing and Screen-o-matic are tools that you can download from the Internet and they are FREE!
Download these tools, they are FREE!
