My 1st Infographic: The History of ESL Methods/Approaches

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information,data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.

Above is the definition of infographics from Wikipedia, and although it is possible to quickly and clearly present complex information via infographics, it is really time-consuming to create them, at least for the first time. With this blog post of mine, I would like to share an infographic that I created to experience this as a person who is fond of design. I created this infographic thinking of ESL methods and approaches that every teacher, or student teacher is familiar with. I thought it might be a good guide to overview those methods in light of the most important components, pros, and cons of all those methods and approaches across a timeline. I used Piktochart to create my infographic, but below you can find some other free/paid tools to create infographics.

  1. Piktochart
  6. iCharts
  7. Creately
  8. Wordle
  9. Venngage
  10. What About Me?

Below is the .jpg version of the infographic and here you can also access its online version on PiktoChart, where you can also view it in presentation mode and see each blog at a time:
