Using Piktochart for Poster Presentations
« on: April 14, 2018, 08:13:24 PM »
Piktochart is a great online tool that helps creating infographics which can be used for studentsí projects such as poster presentations.
The ideas of the projects can be numerous. If we take the first Harry Potter book as an example, students may choose to create a timeline of events, introduce spells and their effect, create an infographic with the book characters etc. The ideas are only limited by studentsí imagination.
First, students will need to learn about creating infographics: how much text it should have versus how much space should be covered with pictures; the balance of color and font and other things.
Next, students can either work in groups or individually on their projects and gather all the information they need for their infographic.
At last, students would need to put all together into an infographic by using Piktochart. The tool has an option for printing out the infographic by splitting it into printable parts. Then it can be printed on several A4 paper size sheets and glued together into one piece.
Students can then present their infographic-posters during class either one by one or as a poster session. Other students can ask questions and engage in conversations with the presenter.
