Infographics in the classroom

I have often thought that infographics would provide a really interesting context for work in the classroom linking datahandling, information processing, graphics and a strong emphasis on creativity.

The latest ‘What About Me’ tool published by Intel that uses your facebook and twitter activity to create a digital profile/infographic got me to thinking about a spreadsheet that could do something similar – and come up with some basic graphics that could be used as an ‘About Me’ summary.

Has anyone done anything along these lines already?
