Technology in the Classroom: Piktochart
My elective course for my Bachelor of Education is focused on a variety of different ways teachers can incorporate technology into everyday learning. We were asked to create a 15 minute presentation that demonstrated to the class how we could use a chosen online resource to enhance our lessons. My group chose to show the class how infographics can be used in many subjects as a 21st century take on a poster. Not only do they allow students to organise a lot of fairly complex information into a simple visual representation, infographics are a fun way for students to be creative and delve deeper into their subject matter.
Below is a copy of the presentation that we used for our introduction to Piktochart, the software we chose to use to demonstrate how easy it is to incorporate technology in our lessons. Attached is also the instruction sheet we used to walk the class through the basic functionality of Piktochart.
