Create Simple Infographics With This Superb Online Tool

Piktochart is an excellent online website (also available on the App Store) which makes it really easy to create an infographic.

An infographic is a way of displaying data in a visual way.  Text is combined with images and symbols to make the message the infographic conveys, easy to understand.


How do you use Piktochart?

It is a really easy, user-friendly program. Watch my video tutorial to see how it works:


How can it be used in class?

My pupils are learning about World War 2 at the moment, so I asked them to make an infographic on this topic.  First I gave them a quick tutorial on how to use the website.

They then picked a specific area i.e. The Blitz and found a good website for facts.  After, they created their infographics.  Have a look at some of the final pieces:

My students really enjoyed the lesson and it really made them think about different ways of presenting information.  In addition, the program made learning really engaging for ALL of students – some of the infographics above were made by students who have English as a second language.
