I use http://www.kidsdiscover.com/infographics/ with my students. Our next step is for them to create their own. I was exploring Canva this past week.

Kudos from East Los Angeles.

SketchyParty TV for iOS is 99¢ today. The app is regularly  $9.99. It's a pictionary-style game, which can make for a really fun class vocabulary review activity. Teams guess the drawings that are mirrored through an Apple TV or through an AirPlayer receiver (like Reflector, AirServer, or Mirroring360).

You could buy an easel, a huge pad of paper, and some markers, then write down a really long list of words and make up some rules and try and keep track of points and get marker smudges all over your furniture.

The ability to accurately analyse student data quickly and efficiently. Using this data then allows you to target teach more effectively!

"Using an image to convey a message can cement a lasting memory.  Combine this image with words and you have the makings of a memorable learning experience.  Tony Vincent of Learning in Hand has shared the idea of creating Infopics, a combination of image and words that combine as a thinking and analysis exercise suitable for both adult and student learning."

Here’s a screenshot from the ScreenFlow timeline for the video I’m posting later today. With so many illustrations, screen recordings, titles, and animations, it took days to edit!

The Noun Project has a huge collection of symbols and icons. All of The Noun Project’s icons are only available to download in black. In my new post I show you how I recolor them with Method Draw, a free web-based graphic app.
