The Infographic

Rationale: Why use this sort of “fancy stuff”?  Are we here to learn or to be “sold a bill of goods”!!  Is there any steak in all this sizzle?  What about “chalk and talk”, bla bla bla

This video sells the idea better than I can (a design firm produced it after all) http://vimeo.com/29684853#

Illustration: This is a link to an infographic that came from an Educause study about students and technology.  http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/ERS1208/EIG1208.pdf.
