Students will use the knowledge and skills needed to access, understand, analyze and evaluate information, make meaning, express thoughts and emotions, present ideas and opinions, interact with others, and participate in activities at school and in their lives beyond school.
This lesson is best approached after students have some experience with both Canva and the Green Screen App. Students who are confident and experienced users of iPads will have higher success with this. Allow students to work in groups in order to support their own learning and become more independent users of technology. Students will analyze data- either made publicly available or collected from their own original research- and create an infographic using the Canva App. Students then infuse dynamic video into the infographic using the Green Screen App. After the infographics are complete, post them around the school or via social media to highlight student work. For specific steps on app use, see the tutorial video below.
Extending the Project
This project could be extended beyond mere classroom content review. Students could launch school-wide campaigns, advertise for club or sporting events, and even start small “businesses” that market to other students.
