One of my biggest passions is helping students come to love learning in a new way. Throughout the curriculum creation and lesson planning processes, this passion has guided me to helping my students think about expository writing differently through the creation of infographics.
From there, I introduced my students to the following tools: Canva, Piktochart, and Smore. Students ultimately had a choice in which tool they wanted to use, but I encouraged students who are more interested in design and proficient iPad users to select Piktochart. Students who tend to need more support found that Smore worked best for them. Canva was perfect for those students who wanted to take small risks. Piktochart and Canva are available through the app store, and all three are available through the web.
