46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | KI Classroom Resources | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.

So if you want to try to make infographics–or better yet have students make them–where do you start? The 46 tools below, curated by Faisal Khan, are a good place to start. And with the sheer quantity and variety–from sources of data and models to tools that create them (including our personal favorite, piktochart), you can almost certainly find something to use in your classroom that’s not too pricey, that works for your grade level, and that isn’t blacked by your district’s incredibly frustrating filter.

3rd Graders Research Animals with 4 iPads, AudioBoo and PebbleGo

3rd Graders Research Animals with 4 iPads, AudioBoo and PebbleGo | KI Classroom Resources | Scoop.it

This spring semester, 3rd grade students at Shedeck Elementary School in Yukon, Oklahoma, worked with their librarian, Jeannie Wilmes, to conduct “blended research” about different kinds of animals. Their research was “blended” because students used both library books as well as electronic resources like the PebbleGo website and database. Mrs. Wilmes worked with students twice a week for two weeks in this project, which culminated in students audio recording their research using the free iPad app AudioBoo. Students were then able to share their recordings with classmates and with parents online. In this five minute interview video, Mrs. Wilmes and some of the Shedeck third graders describe their project, what they enjoyed and some of their lessons learned.

Michelle Cagliano's curator insight, September 19, 2013 5:18 PM

PebbleGo is a wonderful website that offers a nonfiction variety of animals and biographies for students to research and learn about.  This is a great teaching tool so that students may utilize technology and learn independently as to create their own knowledge.  The site is easy to navigate, includes vocabulary words with definitions that are read to students if necessary, and printable diagrams.

High School iPad/iPhone Teacher Resources

High School iPad/iPhone Teacher Resources | KI Classroom Resources | Scoop.it

This site was created out of a desire to network in an inclusive way with all teachers who wanted to find iPad, iPhone, and iPod resources that can be useful at the secondary level. 


Many on-line articles say things like "The 10 best reading apps", but many of the suggestions are aimed at primary and junior students. Hopefully the suggestions on this site will put intermediate and secondary teachers in touch with a few resources that apply more directly to them and their students.

Build with Chrome | KI Classroom Resources | Scoop.it

I don't often talk about it, but I own a little house in Sydney bay. It's not much, but I'm proud of it. The problem is that it is only virtual and made out of Lego. This wonderful site allows you to design 3D houses, or anything else, with virtual Lego on a virtual plot in Australia or New Zealand. It's like a simplified version of SketchUp, great for younger children.

OSnap! Grab This iPad App While It's Free

OSnap! Grab This iPad App While It's Free | KI Classroom Resources | Scoop.it

OSnap is an iPad app that I reviewed a couple of months ago. The app is available in a "lite" version and in a "pro" version. The pro version is currently available for free. It's an excellent app for creating time-lapse and stop-motion videos.

 

The app is quite easy to use. To create a video with the OSnap app you simply need to start a project and take a series of still pictures using your iPad’s camera. Then adjust the number of frame per second to edit your video. If you want to, you can add a sound track to your video by selecting audio files that are stored on your iPad. You can go back and edit your videos by removing images and from the project at any time. Completed projects can be stored on your iPad, uploaded to YouTube, or shared via email.
