I have just finished watching a webinar about infographics and it was very informative. I have learned first of all what they are but also how to use them. What I'm looking forward to the most is creating one on my own. I'm sure my students will love them, especially creating one.

Hi Ankica,
I have just watched it, too. I really liked the idea of having students analyze infographics. I have just gone online and found some very interesting ones. Instead of printing them, we can put them in Qr-codes and have students use their mobile devices.

Excellent presentation. Very clear, easy to follow and practical. I've already created my own Infographics file in Pinterest ans started saving some. No time to have a look as how to create some but I'd like to work with students on that as I think they can do an awsome job. Thank you so much, Nik, for the whole presentation and for your kind offer.

Thanks a lot for another great opportunity to have a great speaker Nik Peacher. I’ve never taught my students with the help of inforgraphics but I will definitely start it thanks to a great variety of resources Nik provoded. Using infographics will make our class activities more personalized and purposeful for students. It will push critical thinking as well. Topical infographics or showing statistics will engage students into discussion and keep them talking. I like the idea of teaching students writing by converting infographics to writing texts.

Hi Marina,
We are so happy you enjoyed Nik's session. The idea of using infographics is just amazing. We never stop learning, do we?

I attended last night's live session and it made my evening. I liked the way Nik involved us by challenging us to find infographics during the webinar. I used infographics I created with easel.ly at the beginning of the school year and I must admit that it took me quite some time because it was my first time. I haven't renewed the experience since. But now that I know that tons of them are available on the Internet ... I really loved the Paris and London one and the possible activities that go with it. I also liked the idea of infographics leading to relating or writing a story. I am eager to explore Nik's book. for more brilliant ideas!

Dear Pascale,
Thanks for adding one more resource to our toolbox. I have also created some infographics myself, but completely ignored such creative and engaging uses for them in class.

I always looked at the infographic as useless pictures.Thanks to Nik Peacher my attitude changed ob the quite opposite one. To my tremendous surprise, he easily proved that teachers can use them to benefit the teaching process and the students themselves.I cannot but express my admiration of the great presenter, who easily grabbed the attention of the audience and made us like kids participate in the exciting activities, and to his inspiring ideas, concerning the topic of the live session.The time of the session passed very quickly.

I'm Nik Peachey's fan and I've been following his resources (blogs, Pinterest, etc.) for several years already. Yesterday I had a great chance to take part in the live session and I liked Nik Peache's presentatiion a lot. I don't use much of infographics in my classroom and I've never thought of developing students' critical thinking skills with the help of infographics. Really it was a thought-provoking session. Thank you very much for it!

Looking and analysing pictures is included in our ESL curriculum (Certificate in Spoken and Written English), therefore I am so happy to have seen fantastic examples of activities you can do with your students preparing them for such tests (assessment). Will certainly incorporate into my course.

I have always loved infographics for their condensed visual information provided in a nutshell and the potential for generating discussions and analysis in the classroom. Nick Peachey's session was a pleasure to attend! I am most grateful for all the links he provided, especially the ones for creating infographics. I am sure I can get lots of mileage for my classes.

I just watched Nik´s presentation and it was fantastic to reconsider the importance of critical thinking and to discover infographics´importance in learning efficiency. I discovered a powerful tool for teaching as it feeds into many sts´natural tendency to learn by seeing and interacting.

I did a course on " Redesigning Instructional Materials by Incorporating Critical Thinking Skills" Your session very useful as students learn authenticity of websites too by doing tasks.

@Pushpanagini - Dear Pushpa, I remember Nik saying that the coupon is valid for one week only. That must be the reason :(
