Recently, the folks over at Visme.co reached out to us to check out their platform for creating presentations, infographics, and banners. So I went over and played around with the site to see how it could be useful to our teacher community here at Simply Novel, and here is what I found:
When I wrote about my favorite performance assessment ideas, I mentioned that I loved teaching students how to create infographics to synthesize information using visual rhetoric (check out my student sample). I even created my own infographic for our discussion of flipping the classroom. From those two posts, I received several questions and other feedback about how to teach and create infographics successfully in the classroom. Have no fear! I am here today to give you a brief tutorial of piktochart, which is my favorite infographic site. After the video tutorial, be sure to check out how I use infographics in my own classroom and then leave a comment or question so we can share the love!
