The big picture: Infographics for social work
by Pat Shelly
We’ve all heard the saying:
“A picture is worth a thousand words.”
Aristotle said, “The soul never thinks without a picture.”
Pictures can inform and inspire us.
One way to brighten and broaden the view of social work is through infographics.
An infographic is a visual representation of information or data. It combines data and design in a format that is easy to share and to understand.
Given the role of technology and the internet in knowledge-production and dissemination, this educational tool is especially useful today.
