If you’ve been looking for new ideas and inspiration for incorporating graphic design and data visualization into your remote, hybrid, and in-class instruction, this is your edWebinar. Join Belinda Shillingburg, 8th grade English teacher and a School Site Instructional Leader, and KQED Program Managers Ilana Somasunderam and Rachel Roberson to explore a variety of ways students can make infographics for creative expression and to communicate information.

The recorded presentation covers some visual design fundamentals along with ways to craft lessons for classroom projects that align with curriculum standards. Strategies for assessing and providing effective feedback for students’ media projects will also be discussed. You don’t have to be an artist to teach your students how to use graphics and media to demonstrate their learning.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
