Goal: In a one hour training for classroom teachers set up as a Hyperdoc, explore how teachers can use Noun Project icons and Google Drawings to create anchor charts for their lessons.
Engage: Show Why Your Brain Craves Infographics. What catches your attention? Consider both the design and the content.
Explore: Examine at examples of infographics shared in the Infographics Bootcamp Collaborative List such as Evaluating a News Article, Sharing Your Work Online, and How to Read Media. What do these infographics communicate? How do they communicate it?
Apply: Create an infographic for a topic/anchor chart in Google Drawings using icons from the Noun Project that you’re covering in an upcoming unit of study.
Share: Conduct a Gallery Walk to showcase the infographics created.
Reflect: Brainstorm ways that infographics could be used in the classroom. How can educators use it? When could learners create them?
