60 Things Students Can Create To Demonstrate What They Know - TeachThought

60 Things Students Can Create To Demonstrate What They Know - TeachThought | Web 2 Tools for Educators | Scoop.it
Nowadays, many educators use the same methods over and over again in their lessons for students to express themselves and demonstrate their new knowledge. Today’s students want to express themselves in a variety of different ways. They want their academic work to be relevant, engaging and fun.

Below is a diverse list adapted from resources found at fortheteachers.org of potential student products or activities learners can use to demonstrate their mastery of lesson content. The list also offers several digital tools for students to consider using in a technology-enriched learning environment.

How Students Can Use Timeline Infographics in the Classroom

How Students Can Use Timeline Infographics in the Classroom | Web 2 Tools for Educators | Scoop.it

As a foreign language teacher, I am always looking for innovative ways to allow my students to demonstrate what they have learned.

I want students to be able to choose a tool that brings out their creative side and, as a result, leads to a more authentic and meaningful learning experience.

Because learning a language can be difficult, I try to design a variety of activities and projects that will provide students with practice and unique opportunities to develop their language skills through the creation of their projects.

Infographics are visually stimulating and force us to summarize well. What if we did more infographics in schools and less research papers?

Infographics as PBL. LOVE this idea!

Martha Bongiorno's curator insight, December 2, 2016 9:53 AM
I love this idea! It is perfect for Project-Based/Problem-Based Learning...I do caution against moving away from research papers to just infographics, though. I think using more infographics in social studies or science would be beneficial.

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | Web 2 Tools for Educators | Scoop.it

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

These tools are mostly web-based and provide ways in which students can visually represent their ideas. 

Stephan Hughes's curator insight, October 21, 2014 9:27 AM

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools
