Day 1:

In the Library 3/24/16, we:
1) Received the paper about the project from Mrs. Wellins.

2) Learned how to access the wiki for our Infographics Project (this wiki)

3) Decided on the Person who would be the
Subject for our Infographic Project (list below)

4) Looked at examples of Biography Infographics (below and here)

5) Talked about the qualities of an Infographic

6) Learned about using the following resources:

7) Watched Mrs. Slim navigate piktochart.com (to create the Infographic)

Followed these Directions
  • Start in Google Docs. Use the Researcher (TOOLS>RESEARCH) to find a headshot of your biography candidate and more links.
  • Download as a Word Doc.
  • Open the Word Doc. Double Click on the Picture.
  • In the Toolbar in Word, click on "Remove Background."
  • Now right-click on the image and save as a .PNG. Use this PNG in your Infographic!
  • Go to piktochart.com and create a free account
  • Select one of these three templates: Infographics, Report, or Presentation
  • Then choose the style of template you want (do not choose a template labeled “Level Up”, you must pay for those)
  • Now create your project!
  • When you are finished, you have THREE things to do:
    • 1) PUBLISH your Infographic in Piktochart.
    • 2) Download the picture as a .PNG and save in your MY DOCUMENTS folder or Google Drive. Save as: PERIOD NUMBER. Last Name. FIRST NAME. BIOGRAPHY CANDIDATE
      • EXAMPLE: 1.Slim.Marie.Adam.Sandler
      • ANOTHER EXAMPLE: 1.Nguyen.Jessica.Elvis
    • 3) Upload the picture (PNG) to THIS LINK! (Edit>File>Upload File>Double Click after Uploaded>SAVE)
  • BEHOLD the majesty of your creation on your page when Slim uploads it!
Day 2

DAY 2 (3/25/16): (ONLY 1st period NOW able to do Google Slides, but SLIM will show you how to format it so it becomes an INFOGRAPHIC).

In Mrs. Wellins' Classroom 3/25/16, we:
1) Opened the Biography Doc from our Google Drive

2) Shared our Google Doc with swellins@ggusd.net and
mslim@ggusd.net with editing privileges.

3) Renamed our doc: PERIOD#.YOURLAST.YOURFIRST.BiographySubjectName

example: 2.Nguyen.Kathy.Benjamin.Franklin
or 5.Smith.Phillip.Genghis.Khan

do NOT worry about it.
You can just use a picture WITH the background.
Just continue with Piktochart and the ChromeBooks.

4) In Google Docs, went to Tools>Research

5) Found the answers to this Information:
  1. Birth and Death
  2. Childhood
  3. Education
  4. Contribution to Society/Invention
  5. Life Events/Experiences
  6. Failures
  7. Achievements
