Interactive poster with resources

2 Oct


Thinglink is a brilliant tool for creating interactive posters and is very easy to use.  You just upload an image or create your own then insert tags with links to further information, videos and resources for students to use.  This resource would be so useful for teachers/tutors as extension or added information to incorporate differentiation as students can access information specifically liked to topics rather than finding it on the Internet.

Please click on the link http://bit.ly/1dW6iH4 to access resources for teaching and learning (made in twenty minutes).

Shakespeare infographic

18 Aug


For all you Shakespeare fans out there and those that teach it, here’s an enlightening infographic to introduce some of the main facts about his work.  You could use this as a starter for the new term or get students to make their own based upon the key facts that they have uncovered in their studies at the end of the year.

Fabulous infographic illustrating different strategies for questioning. Use this as a prompt if you get stuck on questioning to determine understanding or just to refresh your memory on alternative ways to question.

Prompts to stimulate planning and writing

21 May


After seeing this visual on how soda impacts on your body it gave me an idea for providing frames for students to research and input information.

Just select an image outline that represents your topic and divide it up into the amount of sections that you want students to research. Students can then either research and fill the information in electronically or handwrite it in on a handout. The finished task will make excellent posters and I know students will be more eager to fill in this type of template than making notes on a blank sheet of paper. Students could always try to create an infographic from their information using a program such as http://www.easel.ly/ as a stretch and challenge task.

CV infographic

20 May


A great infographic to support sessions on CV writing to show learners what they’re up against in industry.  I tell my students these facts every year but this reinforces the information in a visual format and is a great discussion starter. It can be displayed on the interactive board and given as handouts for the students to read and discuss.

Create your own infographics as a learning resource

29 Apr


If you want a simple tool to create effective infographics then this software is for you… and me! I’ve been using infographics for a while to support students in their learning as it presents information in a visual and accessible format using bold text, colour and images. So far the feedback from students has been very positive.

This software has a variety of templates which can be edited to however you want to present the information and then can be saved to PDF for printing or inserting into an interactive presentation such as Prezi.

My students use infographics as guides, sources of information and to scaffold their learning. Students could also create their own infographics to show what they’ve learnt or as a summative piece for assessment. It’s easy to register and get started straight away, the link is below.


Moodle guide and assessment ideas

27 Apr


A really great infographic that is colour coded on the effectiveness of Moodle provision for assessment, teaching and learning. It also provides ideas for embedding Moodle into the curriculum and I will use this when designing the curriculum for the forthcoming academic year to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the tool.
