Enhancing Visual Making in the Classroom Justin Pierce

We have become a visual culture that learns, judges, and absorbs the world through visuals. With so much technology at our fingertips we need to utilize resources that give students the opportunity to "professionalize" their work flow. At the high school level we need to move past trying to have our students be artists within your class. They need to become designers who create with purpose and ease.

Being creative and creating visuals based around learning don't have to be a struggle within the classroom.

Adobe Spark allows students to design a post (mini-poster), a webpage, or an animation/video with ease. It is web-based or is also available as an app. Each allow students to work with images, text, color, and borders to approach their learning visually.

Piktochart allows students to create INFOGRAPHICS (translating data visually) that can break down research, narratives, processes, and timelines visually.

Canva allows students to create documents, presentations, blog graphics, facebook covers, social media posts, cards, and photo collages.

Hopefully these tools will empower your classroom to share out and refine information for visual learners in new, exciting, and professional ways. If I can help add any of these resources or more to your lessons please reach out to collaborate. justinr.pierce@cms.k12.nc.us
