47 Creating Digital Resources The design of a learning experience with the use of digital resources should focus on an activity that engages learners in knowledge construction. Knowledge construction can be achieved in many different ways. Here you will find some easy-to-follow steps in order to create your digital resources. The digital resources presented are commonly used in Youth Work and do not require specific expertise, nor are financial resources needed for appropriate equipment. Infographics According to VISME, a platform for creating presentations, documents, data visualisations, videos and other branded content, there are specific “rules” to be followed in order to create an effective infographic. First of all, it should contain engaging illustrations, which can guide the reader visually while narrating a story. The storyline should be clear and the colour combinations harmonious in order to have a better result. For example, if you have chosen three colours for your infographic, 60% of the space should be devoted to the primary colour, 30% to the secondary and 10% to the accent colour. In the case of plenty of textual information, the use of sections is required. Otherwise, it will not be easy to communicate your message. In order to be sure that your message is well understood, you can ask someone else to explain it to you according to their perception. In the process of creating an infographic, it is important to define what your target audience is and then what your goals are (Ferreira, 2014). For example, you may want to raise awareness on an issue, provide step-by-step guidance, reveal a trend using specific data, break down information that is hard to digest, compare concepts or create a story (ibid). To achieve your goals, you can use charts, lists composed of text, timelines, how-to instructions, flow charts or decision trees, maps, photographs, large numbers, or visual metaphors, e.g., anatomy of a website (VISME, n.d.). The information provided on your infographics can be retrieved, among others, from scholarly resources, open-source databases, reports and press releases, recently published surveys, or polls, including your own informal surveys through Google Forms. Remember that it is not only the presentation that matters but also the accuracy of the information provided. Try to avoid inconsistencies and plagiarism and detect the correct pattern to visualise your data. You can start by capitalising on infographic templates provided on Canva. Quizzes
