Great for advocacy now.....Teach students how to create infographics to 'show' their understanding of what they know about a topic they have researched.

Carey Leahy's comment, March 22, 2013 6:59 PM
Seems more like a poster. Most infographics have statistics.

Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

Six Steps for Planning a Successful Project

David Grant, who guides the school's technology integration and curriculum development, has put together a six-step rubric for designing a project. He says Fading Footprints, which became a model for King and Expeditionary Learning Schools, doesn't take an entire school, or even a team of twelve, to plan and carry out; one or two teachers can tailor this one to fit their time and resources.
