Instructional Ideas

  1. At the beginning of the year, teachers can have students create a collage as an introductory “Getting-To-Know-You” activity. Students can select images that show them with their family and friends, playing sports, engaging in hobbies, or anything else that represents them. Teachers can then have students add text to their collage. When finished, students can download the collage and then upload it to a class website. Other students can then view the collage and comment on it via the class website.
  2. After reading a text, teachers can have students create a collage or infographic that represents a main point, person/character, idea, or argument from the text. Students can then add text and other design elements to their collage or infographic to highlight certain aspects of it. When finished, students can download their work and then either upload it to a class website or email it to their teacher.
  3. When preparing for a presentation, students can use this website to produce visual aides that relate to their topic. This way, students can refer to them while making their presentation.
  4. When studying a cycle or process, students can create an infographic that visually depicts and explains the phenomenon. When finished, students can be put into small groups, and each student in the group can explain their infographic to their partners. As they explain it, their partners can ask questions to help the student who is presenting clarify the ideas presented in the infographic. After this activity, each student can return to his/her infographic and make any revisions before submitting it to their teacher for grading or posting it to a class website.
  5. When discussing emotional appeal in photography, teachers can have students choose a picture and then upload it to the “Photo Editor” option in this website. Using the tools in that option, students can be required to make the photo look friendly, intimidating, haunting, and foreboding among other emotions. When finished, students can save the photos and insert them into a word processing document or post them onto a class website. In either scenario, students can then write the emotion they were trying to depict and how they attempted to do so.
