I’ve been leading a series of lunch & learns for faculty in the Upper School at Woodward Academy, and this is by far a favorite part of my job.

My recent session, Tech Tools To Enhance Creativity & Elevate Engagement, featured an old favorite that I’ve started using again. Infogram is a FREE, online infographic creator that students can sign up for and authenticate with their google accounts. I used this previously when I taught social studies, and I found it to be a great tool for creating statistical representations in wars, timelines, and professionally imaged reports. This year, I dug it out of my dusty toolkit and started using it to develop a timeline for a cohort I’m leading.  I’m hooked again and unsure of why I quit using it in the first place. Well, actually, my Assistant Principal days consisted of trying to stay above water, so that’s probably why.  But, I’m back and it’s better than ever!

Students can create their accounts by doing the following:

Once students are in, it’s very intuitive and they can select from ready made templates or create their own. Recently, a history class of seniors used this to create timelines for a presidential campaign project. Here are some pictures of them creating and presenting.

Here is the graphic I made for the cohort I’m leading. It was quick and easy to use!

Happy (Info) Gramming!
