Favourite infographic for March: Theories of learning

Courtesy of @yearinthelifeof

I I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time these days digesting information through infographics. Indeed, I find myself regularly talking about them at conferences, even in my own presentations. I’m a firm believer in their value: while they should not be seen as a replacement for reading, they are a very useful tool when it comes to getting key ideas across quickly and in a visually stimulating way.

With this in mind, I’ve decided to post an ‘infographic of the month’. Firstly, this will mean a blog post requiring very little work from me! Secondly, it would be nice to give further exposure both to infographics with succinct yet useful information, as well as those that I find to be eloquently or innovatively designed.
