Icons (w/ Google drawings)

While learning about visual literacy, I stumbled on the idea of icons.

An ICON is a simple picture or symbol representing an idea, concept, or action.

Icons …

  1. Quickly and compactly show information
  2. Focus and emphasis certain ideas
  3. Help you remember things

You can use icons in projects, posters, lab report procedures or diagrams, presentations … Let me know if you want to make one or have an idea on how you or I could use icons to help your learn.

These are the icons I created for the lab report document
