Recently I attended the Independent Schools of New Zealand annual conference in Wellington. We had some amazing speakers, with great ideas, content and even some actionable material. I noticed the increasing use of Infographics.
Infograhics are being used more and more to communicate ideas. Used correctly they can give the reader access to data visually, along with communication of an idea or point. For an interesting blog on some of the more interesting go here: http://www.coolinfographics.com/.
Have a look at these two tools that can be used via your web browser to create such visuals: http://infogr.am and http://www.easel.ly/.
