Easel.ly is one amongst many great tools to create infographics! Infographics are wonderful tools to support a presentation, structurise ideas, or create for example flow charts.
The tool itself is very easy to use. Various templates are available to provide you with a kick start, but you can also start from scratch and design your infograph yourself. The basic version of the tool is free, but upgrades require payment.
You can create an infographic yourself about a subject students may find hard to grasp, but I have seen that it is a lot more fun if the students make them themselves. It allows them to work creatively, to structurise the information, and in the end it gives them a great overview of what they have learnt. It's also very effective to let the students present their infographic; they are far more inventive and creative than you may expect.
