Use infographics to gauge student learning

Have you thought about asking students to create an infographic highlighting what they’ve just learned in class?

Infographics will teach students to focus on the most important takeaways of a lesson, course, or classroom activity. You’ll be surprised how each student interprets an idea or insight from your class using pictograms, charts, and infographics.

Use infographics as a tool for end-of-the-school-year reflections

Apart from keeping track of your lessons throughout the season or semester, you can use infographics in class for end-of-year reflections. For example, encourage students to share a book, lesson, or activity that they’ve enjoyed the most throughout the year through an infographic!

Use an infographic creation activity to help students sharpen their research skills

Making infographics from scratch in your class isn’t just about creativity. It’s also an excellent way for them to improve their research chops. As part of an infographic creation session in class, encourage your students to ask better questions, find trustworthy information, and seek opposing views or perspectives.
