    Infographics are great! I think they certainly help increase retention as they more fully engage learners by giving them additional ways to absorb the content. Lectures with visual aids give students another avenue to absorb the information. As stated in the infographic above, students only hear about half of what an instructor says. With additional methods to absorb information available, such as a visual aid, retention can be increased. Engagement is key because the brain stays on task and attention is less likely to wander.
