Researching and collecting data is the first step, but conveying the data in an engaging format is critical to 21st-century communication. Infographics create visual essays to convey data and messages. Step up data representation in your own and your students' projects. Examples will be drawn from 3rd-12 grade. In this session participants walk away with Google tips and tricks to use Sheets, Graphs, Forms, Draw, and Pixlr to create and print poster-size infographics. We will also use scaffolded templates, Info Bits, and Google Explore.
  • Participants will have hands-on experience using Google Tools to create visual essays.
  • Clear understanding of the importance of visualization in today's communication
  • Plans for application of concepts to large or small projects
  • Skills to implement a plan
Even though this is a 'teacher/student' focused session, anyone can benefit from knowing how to create a visual representation of data, such as admins, assistants, district office, and others!
