New Online Safety Lesson: Infographics: Is a picture really worth a thousand words?

The 13th installment in the lesson series I’m writing on behalf of iKeepSafe, focuses on developing and understanding of how to interpret and create infographics

Is a picture really worth a thousand words? Research indicates that visual communication may be more powerful than verbal communication, suggesting that people learn and retain information when it is presented visually better than when it is only provided verbally or as text .

Every single day we create with 2.5 billion gigabytes of data from sensors, mobile devices, online transactions, and social networks. That amount of data is equal to a full-length episode of “Glee” running continuously for 214 thousand years.
