PBL, Information Literacy & Infographics

Jane Krauss Teacher, curriculum and program developer, author, PBL facilitator, techie

Quite a few math and social studies standards focus on information literacy. For example, the NCTM (math) Focal Points say students are to "make sense of statistical data by representing the important features of a data set and the relationships between data sets." How better to accomplish this than through PBL, where real-life, messy, multiple-factor investigations go on?
I've recently taken a deep dive into infographics and would like to share what I've learned and hear how you approach visual and information literacy. Are visual displays of data part of your students' everyday diet? Please join me in Learn Central on September 16, 5:00 pacific time. http://www.learncentral.org/node/99151.
