Graphic design, also known as communication design, is the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content. The form it takes can be physical or virtual and can include images, words, or graphics. The experience can take place in an instant or over a long period of time. The work can happen at any scale, from the design of a single postage stamp to a national postal signage system. It can be intended for a small number of people, such as a one-off or limited-edition book or exhibition design, or can be seen by millions, as with the interlinked digital and physical content of an international news organization. It can also be for any purpose, whether commercial, educational, cultural, or political.

Infographics (information graphics) is the display of information in a way that it can be easily understood at a glance. An infographic makes minimal use of text and can be a powerful tool for displaying data, explaining concepts, simplifying presentations, mapping relationships, showing trends and providing essential insights. The use of compelling images on an infographic can make what is an abstract idea that much easier to understand.
When students are given a task that seems challenging, they lose the motivation to try. Staying completely focused throughout a 50-minute lecture is definitely a challenge, A student’s attention can get away from you in seconds, so you have to find a way to hold it through innovative methods of teaching. A teacher walks into a classroom and suddenly, everyone gets quiet. They listen to the lecture very carefully, take notes, and ask a few questions at the end. They take a short break after the class, only to prepare for another hour of such enjoyment.
