A little more: In today’s ever more visual world, visual literacy skills became more critical for learners. Therefore teaching visual literacy helps students interpret visual media and becoming a much broader and extensive body of learning and comprehension in education. In this paper, how to use infographics as a learning tool was discussed in order to equip students with visual literacy. Research was conducted with 64 teacher candidates. The aim of the study is to expose the usage of infographics as a learning tool. Teacher candidates designed infographics of instructional design model themed individually within the course. As a result of the rubric evaluation the scores of “visualization” and “components” dimensions was found lowest; scores of “colors”, “fonts” and “information organization” dimensions was found relatively higher.
