An infopic pairs a picture with text and is designed to communicate a message. The message might be a summary, quote, definition, notes, data, weblink, hashtag, or other informational tidbits. The information might come from a conference, workshop, activity, lesson, video, book, a conversation, etc. Your blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Google Plus are great places to share infopics.
The process of creating an infopic forces you to listen or read information and decide what is most important to remember and share. Learners of any age can make an infopic!

I use Keynote on my Mac to create infopics that I post on Instagram (username @learninginhand). These microlearning tidbits are for teachers who want to learn a little technology a few times a week. I use Keynote because I'm very familiar with it's design capabilities. I could create similar infopics in PowerPoint or Google Slides.
