How I Use It
I used it last year as a way to create my syllabus rather than paper. I created a different one for each course. I had students in each of my Spanish courses create an infographic based on the content being covered in our classes and I loved that they could select from so many choices to really display their interests and show creativity. The variety of projects created using 1 rubric but with so many options, really made for an engaging lesson that enabled students to learn about each other and from each other. I also learned new skills because of their questions and also had students take the lead with their classmates.
My Take
It is a great way to display information using the ready made templates and can easily be adapted to change the icons and graphics to whatever your needs are, whether in education, business, or any area. Students enjoy creating something different with lots of choices for personalizing their work and seeing the different displays of their classmates. It is easy to use, and students really like it for the projects we do, the templates really lend themselves to creating a variety of things from infographics, presentations, flyers and more. The one thing I really like it the presentation mode, and students can still present their work to the class.
