Valentine's Day - Hitting The Sweet Spots

Source: KarBel Multimedia
If you’re like us, you may be finding that the polar vortex has wreaked havoc on classes from the multiple snow-day closures. The looming mid-winter break isn’t making things any easier with the constant struggle to keep kids focused on learning. Add Valentine’s Day into the mix on top of everything else, and things get complicated.

Well, take heart. While we don’t typically spend too much time on Valentine’s Day as a special holiday, we know our kids enjoy it. We suppose that’s why we are always looking to find new material each year to bring them into focus during the heart of winter.

As always, some of our favorite items to share are infographics, because of their ability to meet the sweet spots of engagement through design. How Much Will You Spend On Valentine's Day is one of the new ones for 2014 that was designed for Visual Economics by Karbel Multimedia. Its sectional approach, combined with a 3D array to portray the data, make it different from some of the more standard approaches in laying out the graphics.

Another new one for this year is Some Sweet Gifting Statistics. It has plenty of opportunities for comparative writing lessons. If you're looking to have your students make their own Valentine's infographics, check out the

One thing we have noticed in our learners is the growing fondness for motion graphics, sometimes called video infographics or explainer videos. Whatever the name, the power of video truly wins their hearts. So here are just a few of our favorites that we shared with our learners.
