Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

The First Infographic Made by Kids

April30

How much do you know about the favorite stories and fictional characters of elementary students? How about what they want to be they grow up, what they’d like to learn more about or even how technology plays a role in their education?

Well, you can get the answers to all of these questions and more by checking out the first ever infographic created solely by kids from 1,000 student surveys.

Yep, it’s true! This very interesting and informative graphic—created by TeachHUB.com in partnership with the Clever Girls Collective to celebrate National Library Week—is based on surveys from over 1,000 K-5 students from across the U.S. And the best part? The student generated artwork—pretty awesome!  Check out the results shown below. You may be surprised about what the students had to say!

By the way, infographics can make really neat classroom posters too! Use the Block Posters web tool to create your very own!

Infographic of the Week is a series designed to promote the use of infographics and visual literacy in the classroom/education.

Be sure to use the embedded  Zoom.it tools to zero in on the details.

Classroom Connection:

This is the first infographic created using materials gathered solely from kids—not just the data, but the graphics utilized are original artwork generated by students as well. Pretty cool stuff, eh?

Think about creating a similar infographic with the students in your classroom and/or school by developing your own survey, data and student produced illustrations. Talk about an authentic project that could be utilized in various ways in both math and Language Arts classes!

This infographic could also be used as the basis for a class discussion and/or writing activity involving the information presented.
