Infographics to Display Knowledge

I'm looking for the creator of this infographic to give proper citation.
If you know who created it, please reply in the comment section below. 
I just got back from the 2013 Long Island Technology Summit. This year’s theme, “Digital Citizenship,” focused on creating a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning, and productivity; and that develops a personal responsibility for life-long learning. I came back with a few great resources for integrating EdTech tools across disciplines for 21st century literacy. The first one was Piktochart, which is a FREE website for creating infographics (these are super popular right now!). We love them because they are an easy way to consume information for the visual learner. They are also a fun way for students to show what they know. Infographics can be created in three simple phases:
Step 1: Research - Find the information that you want to use, then organize it.
Step 2: Design - Choose a theme of create one from scratch.
Step 3: Pizzazz, Sizzle, Pretty - Lastly select colors, fonts, etc. to make your infographic unique. Have fun and show off what you know!
