Student voice and choice are essential elements to designing personalized learning. As we all know, it’s really powerful to give kids a menu of options on how to show they know a concept or content. I think a really cool way that also requires a lot of higher order, deeper thinking is the use of infographics. These rich, dense with content, and one-page documents really require a deep understanding of content as well as thorough planning. There are a lot of online tools to create them. I’ve had good luck with Easel.ly. It’s free– there is a “pro version” but it’s not necessary to good work. It’s really easy to use and only takes a few seconds to set up an account. So, if you are thinking about different ways for your students to demonstrate understanding, please consider this tool.
