LA EDAD MODERNA desde Chiclayo

El equipo de InfoEDUgrafías da las gracias por este bonita presentación un gran trabajo realizado por el alumnado de Chiclayo en Perú y nuestro mayor reconocimiento para  ALeyda y su alumnado.

Mi nombre es Aleyda Leyva Cévez y escribo desde Chiclayo, una ciudad del norte de Perú. Hoy vi los resultados, ¡muchas felicidades por su peonza!

Hace un tiempo vengo trabajando infografías con mis chicos de secundaria (entre 12 y 15 años) y ha dado magníficos resultados. En esta oportunidad me gustaría compartir las infografIas realizadas en el tercer año de secundaria en donde abordamos el inicio de la Edad Moderna.

Datos claves
País: Perú
Institución Educativa Privada: Peruano Español (Sede Chiclayo)
Docente: Aleyda A. Leyva Chévez

INFOGRAFÍAS DE LA EDAD MODERNA EN POWER POINT
Tercer año entró a la edad moderna y como proyecto de unidad decidimos trabajar infografías ya que así tendrían oportunidad de indagar, organizar y representar información, además que me aseguraría que sus productos sean originales.
 Primero definimos los hechos históricos referentes a los siglos XVI y XVII que se debían investigar para que luego los chicos se encarguen de analizar el hecho identificando, causas y consecuencias y; luego, sea plasmado en una infografía.
 Estudiar dos siglos en corto tiempo es un reto para los alumnos y docentes, en especial cuando refiere a pueblos distantes cuya geografía política es difícil reconocer, por eso con este proyecto se busca fomentar la investigación de hechos específicos.

 ¿Cómo trabajamos?
Ya que requería de una guía sencilla y que explicara el proceso de hacer infografías para el curso de historia, decidí elaborar mi propia guía que quedó organizada en cuatro pasos:

PASO 1:
Búsqueda de la Información: A cada microequipo se le asignó un tema específico sobre el tema de la unidad. En clase se da el alcance sobre las principales características de cada aspecto, pero los alumnos deben investigar datos más profundos.

PASO 2
Selección y organización de la información: Los alumnos deben identificar cuál es el contenido que deben incluir en su infografía, para esto se plantea una serie de preguntas que le guíen en la organización de la información, así verifican que su investigación de fuentes permite el estudio del tema trabajar.
Las preguntas planteadas deben girar en torno al tema indicado y a los siguientes ejes:
  • ¿En qué contexto se dio? (espacio  y tiempo)
  • ¿Qué características presenta?
  • ¿Cuáles son sus elementos, clases o componentes?
  • ¿Cuál es la secuencia de hechos?
  • ¿Qué grupos sociales y personajes intervienen?
La idea es que cada pregunta represente un tema a tratar en la infografía, así al  responder tendrá el contenido de la infografía organizado.

PASO 3
Diseño de la infografía: Para esto los alumnos consultaron este enlace para ver una guía  para reconocer los elementos y diferentes diseños. Visitan ejemplos de infografías para luego identificar los organizadores visuales y las imágenes que permitirán explicar mejor el contenido.
 Para identificar los organizadores visuales recomendados pueden verificar la inserción de SmartArt en Power Point, pues es la plataforma que se empleará para la realización de las infografías.
 Debe identificar los elementos (imágenes, texto, organizadores gráficos) con los que explicará cada parte del contenido a presentar.
 Definen un título sugerente que motive la lectura de su infografía, redactan la introducción del contenido y señalan las fuentes empleadas.
 Los alumnos arman su bosquejo en borrador, y compilan el material (imágenes, textos en Word, etc.) en una carpeta zip.

 PASO 4
Realización de la infografía en Power Point:  Power Point es sencillo de usar y los alumnos ya reconocen su manejo, además soluciona la dificultad de acceso a internet que tenemos en el colegio y en las viviendas de los chicos. 

Estoy adjuntando el resumen en la experiencia y algunas de las infografías realizadas. Gracias por promover la metodología de aprendizaje Maker.














Valoración del Proyecto 
Ha sido una experiencia enriquecedora en donde los estudiantes asumieron el reto de realizar productos originales; además, de respetar los tiempos. También mejoró el número de alumnos que cumplieron con la actividad, esta vez el 100% presentó su infografía y casi todos en el tiempo establecido.

Saludos desde Perú.

Aleyda Leyva Chévez

Agradecemos a  la profesora Aleyda y a todo su alumnado, este gran trabajo  con el hemos aprendido  y disfrutado muchísimo.

Do you know your neighbourhood?

Another CLIL e-project coming from URJC is coming today. It is called 'Do you know your neighborhood?'

It is a collaborative e-project carried out by a team of Pre-Service Teachers in the Master’s Degree of Bilingual Education at URJC.

The team is composed by:
@Alvaro_Gope, @Marta_Gayarre, @22paau, @maradominguezgo and @nepeusp.

They want to introduce their e-project throughout the infographic they have elaborated using the tool called 'Canva'. The aim of the infographic is that students know how the projects work through visual support and the augmented reality of Aurasma.

From their point of view,  it is important as teachers to bear in mind the benefits that the use of infographics for our students has. It allows them to learn better and it has a lot of positive effects for those whose learning style is visual.

As regards the tool they used, 'Canva', it has a lot of resources in order to create an infographic. However, only few things are free, but the tool allows you to create your own template. In their group, they decided to create their own design and the final result is great!

They strongly recommend to use it!

Learning about the body & senses with ICT

Today we are sharing an educational infographic aimed at learning about the body and the senses for Primary CLIL education.

This infographic has been designed by a team of students at the URJC working on a CLIL e-project called Body and senses. It is a collaborative e-project carried out in the Master’s Degree of Bilingual Education.


They want to introduce their e-project throughout the infographic they have elaborated using the tool called “Piktochart”. The main aim of it is to provide our third graders with a visual support of the main task they are going to do. 

From these pre-service teachers' point of view, the use of infographics is a great resource to be included in the classroom since it eases the understanding of the instructions and it fosters the learning-teaching process. In this light, both teacher and students can take advantage of this fantastic webtool.


Related with the tool they used, “Piktochart”, they believe that it is a great e-tool which allows us to create engaging infographics in order to present projects and other kinds of visual presentations. It offers many features, backgrounds, icons, pictures and templates to personalise work as the customization is much nicer and it provides a dynamic experience rather than using traditional resources. Moreover, you can upload your own images, video, maps and modify them. 

It is a great free resource, available online so everybody can use it only by signing up - freely, too. For these reasons, they highly recommend Piktochart due to its simplicity and usefulness. 

Have a look at their infographic on the following link:

The whole team hope you like it!

The Earth's Adventures

We are sharing a new outcome by a team from the Master's degree in Bilingual Education at Primary Education Schools at the Rey Juan Carlos University. In their subject related to use of ICT in the CLIL classroom, they were asked to participate in this InfoEduGraphic project by their teacher, and here are the results: For this task they had to work in groups to create an InfoEdufoGraphic. The members of this group are: @lainez_ortega@cristinarisueno@GMEstrellaa and @gonzaalo10. To do this they surfed the InfoEduGraphic Project Site to look for tips, instructions and ideas. 

Since all their e-projects (Planets in the Solar SystemThe HydrosphereEnvironmental careThe Mysteries of Earth) are connected with Social Science (planets, Earth, landscapes and so forth), they decided to make an infographic as an introductory tool for a common topic. Their main learning outcome is for their students to know about the planets of the Solar System, The Earth`s layers (Hydrosphere and atmosphere) and landforms as well as environmental care.


First they assigned the roles:


@GMEstrellaa was the coordinator. She had to direct and check that each member did his part of the job. She also encouraged us to keep working on the infographic.

@gonzaalo10 was the supervisor and he was in charge of controlling the creation process and remembering each person's task. He also had to take notes of everybody's ideas. 

@lainez_ortega and @cristinarisueno were the secretaries. They made and create the InfoEduGraphic using Piktochart and Thinglink.

- Finally, (@celiagon92was the speaker. This is why she is the one spreading their work at Twitter and through this blog, as well as her classmates'.

To accomplish this task, they had to face two problems:

  1. How to link all their e-projects contents: After thinking about it for a while, they decided to structure the infoedugraphic from the most asbtract content (the space) to the most concrete one (landforms). This way, we could include all our Social Science contents in a structured and well-organised way. In order to motivate their students, they added a badge that they could get once they finished the learning process.
  2. How to adapt the contents to the different school levels: this challenge was harder to face but finally they thought of making an interactive InfoEduGraphic. What does this mean? They did not only design an infographic (which is an image) but also an interactive image. By doing this, they foster an active learning and allow students of different grades to access to different activities of different difficulty. The teacher could guide all this learning process to do the activities corresponding to each course.


They decided to use the tool Piktochart due to the fact that some members of their group had already used it and they said that it could fit the purpose of the project perfectly. It gives you the possibility to create infographics, posters, presentations or reports depending on what you need. The one they chose is an infographic as it is divided into different blocks which were suitable for each difficulty level. The quality of the pictures and icons that the tool offers is quite high and very attractive, exactly what they were looking for: to captivate students’ attention. Finally, they would like to highlight that Picktochart would be perfect if it offered the possibility of making those graphics interactive (pictures with movements, sounds, links to other webpages and so on) instead of being just an image.
Once they had their infographic finished they went on to make it interactive to promote active learning and to increase pupils' motivation. They did this part of the project using the online tool 
Thing Link. With this tool you can make an interactive image by putting links in small spots inside your picture. Therefore, they included a video to expand knowledge, interactive activities to review each content and an Arts and Crafts activity about environmental care.
As you can imagine, this tool is inreadibly useful to create your own CLIL materials because, by linking resources, you can work the 4Cs. However, they think this tool would be nicer if it offered a wider variety of forms to insert the links, not only spots. 
From this task, they can conclude that Infographics have a lot of uses in our classrooms. They can be used to introduce content, to review vocabulary, to explain the steps of a process or activity, to help children with special educational needs. Infographics present information in a neat and visual way that can clarify students' doubts. Moreover, students can also create their own infographics to learn about content and ICT skills. Their final artifact is this amazing interactive InfoEduGraphic to introduce and learn about different contents regarding our planet.

This augmented infographic has been designed with Piktochart first and then augmented with Aurasma. In order to reveal the hidden augmented educational value, these teachers have placed detailed instructions for students to be able to accomplish the challenge. Do not hesitate to follow their public channel at Aurasma and discover it yourself too.

This team, working on a CLIL e-project for Primary Education at the moment, claim that

'Working with infographics is a very illustrative way to show our students whatever we want as teachers of primary education. Any content of any subject could be taught through a project with Infographics.
For us, while we were doing this challenge, we realised that working on "Infographics" is a very helpful way to summarize in a visual way any content.'
