An infographic is a visual representation of complex data and is accepted worldwide as the best way to communicate information to an audience. So it made sense that the college held an infographic competition of the Hands Up Survey results. The winner of the competition would then get their work published in the school newsletter, Curtin Calls.
Creating an infographic allows students to interpret authentic data, developing the general capabilities of numeracy and critical and creative thinking.
Prizes are needed as an incentive for any competition and the Your Move Rewards Shop made it easy. I traded in some points for an Officeworks' voucher and a stainless steel water bottle for the second prize. I was pleasantly surprised at how swiftly they arrived. This saved me so much time, allowing me to avoid the red tape of getting approval and reimbursement for a school purchase.
The infographics were created on a site developed by a West Aussie start up business Canva. They allow the amateur to create professional graphical designs for free https://www.canva.com/create/infographics/
I have shared the winning entries from two of our year seven students that were published in the November newsletter.
