I spend a lot of time surfing on the website “InfoEDUgrafías” because this kind of website is always interesting for me. The reason is, for me (as a teacher that is not teaching now), these kind of experiences show me that we can do different things in our classrooms.
For the creation of the infographic is important to summarize the information. This tool made me think about how clear my idea was. A way for achieve it was to think that I had to explain the whole project to the students only with a few slides, including relevant information for the teacher.
Canva is an enjoyable tool for using with children. If I had to do this activity with children, I would use it at the end of the project. Students need more time in order to summarize the information and choose the framework of the infographic. However, when the project is finished, this tool is very intuitive with a lot of pictures. Children can add their own pictures so they have lots of choices.
I totally agree with teachers who said that it could be more interesting that students create their own infographic. There are a lot of possibilities for creating infographics with different and imaginative designs. Instead of use presentation, an infographic could be a good choose for showing a project or a school work.
