The Technology: Visme

Everybody knows that old quote about how many words a picture is worth. It’s true! And with the website Visme, you can create your own infographics and other visually based content easily. 

You can build your infographic using the images that Visme provides, including layouts, shapes, text, graphs and backgrounds. Or, you can choose to upload your own images. It also allows you to insert video or music into your infographics.

When you’re finished designing your image, you can download a watermarked low-resolution .jpg and embed your infographic on a website or share it on social media for free. (Higher resolution images without Visme’s branding are available with a premium account).

In Your Classroom

  • An infographic is a terrific alternative assessment to allow students to “show what they know.” For example, ask them to create an infographic that displays the meaning of the four questions.
  • Do give students sufficient time to carefully plan an infographic that actually presents meaningful data.
  • Infographics are terrific for illustrating the flow of any tefillah service, or the seder.
  • Timelines are a natural activity for history classrooms. Ask them to start from Joseph, and end with Moses parting the sea.
