Easel.ly – Infographic Creation for Teachers

Easel.ly – Infographic Creation for Teachers

Easel.ly is an amazing free service to allow teachers to create infographics to assist students with understanding complex topics. Their privacy policy does not allow us leeway to use this service for students. Infographics are challenging to create without a template as they adhere to guidelines for print design. But Easel.ly solves this challenge by providing a large file of templates that you can take and edit.
