To Warm up or not before exercise: Infographic

Warm up Infograph

As a part of the COETAIL Session 3, Assignment one, the task assigned was to create an infographic to be used in the class.  I thought about creating one on the topics/ units usually taught in a Physical Education class through the year.  Then, I realized that an infographic on warm up will be of most use to the students, as my first attempt.  Primarily, it will help develop student interest in warming up their body prior to the activity, which they try and skip. Secondary reason, that warm up is needed throughout the year, and is used for all the units.

I am very happy with the creation of an Infographic on Warm up. In Elementary Physical Education classes, the students are usually not too excited about executing a Warm up routine.  They feel instead of warm up, they should get started with playing games right away.  They are not aware of the importance of warm up, and and hence undermine the value of warming up.  They take it as a waste of time due to this underestimation.

This infographic – a visual presentation will help them understand, and value warm up better since the images lay a deeper impact on the brain of an individual.  The information will help them become aware about its need.  I was always very fascinated by the wordle/ word clouds, I had seen in various presentations by some elite trainers.  Having created a few myself now using http://www.wordle.net, after the first class of this course, I am super excited, and am considering myself tech savvy.  Even though there are numerous wordles on the internet, I feel proud that I have used the wordle created by me in my Infograph.

I am positive that the students will find this infographic on warm up informative and knowledge enhancing.  It is effective and I will be able to use it with all my students, and help them to take warming up phase seriously.  This visual tool helps them understand a serious concept in a fun manner.  I like it.

To make myself better acquainted with how to create an infograph, I explored the following links, and found them of great help.

A Two-Level Deep Infographic is a more advanced infographic. It encompasses the 3 core parts of the design but delves in deeper. Within the realm of Visuals, the infographic has the thematic defining graphics of the design. In addition it has reference icons to condense and compact a lot of data visually. Color coding becomes a must in this type of infographics because visually separating content via color becomes key in relaying information.  It presents factual data.

I am thankful to Google images for being my resource of images for the infographic.
