{Click image to view larger}
Hey DHS students! Check out this awesome FREE infographic app that just might give your presentation an extra edge. It's called Piktochart

You might be asking, what's an infographic?

The following definition can be found on TechTarget's WhatIs.com:

An infographic (information graphic) is a representation of information in a graphic format designed to make the data easily understandable at a glance. People use infographics to quickly communicate a message, to simplify the presentation of large amounts of data, to see data patterns and relationships, and to monitor changes in variables over time.

Infographics abound in almost any public environment -- traffic signs, subway maps, tag clouds, musical scores and weather charts are just a few examples, among a huge number of possibilities. 

The Piktochart example, at right, was created by some students at Springfield Township High School in Pennsylvania. Piktochart is free - just create an account and get started! Let's see what kind of a data story you can tell with Piktochart : )

You can also take a look at some cool infographic examples here and some other exciting infographics posted daily here.
