Experimenting with Piktochart

3 Comments

Today in class, we had the opportunity to experiment with an application that allows you to present information, graphics and data in an interesting way. In order to do that, we used Piktochart, a free online platform that offers you different themes you can play around with, many icons, images and backgrounds that will help you making a visually appealing presentation. You can sign up for free or sign in with your Facebook or Google+ account. I chose to use a template that was already made and I changed the colours to colours I liked, switched some icons (the console, pc and smartphone ones) and I entered my own data in the chart (yes, you can put whatever you like in there). As I am part of the “female gamer population”, I chose to compare the percentage of women and men who played video games and threw in some facts. I was very surprised that the female gaming population is so high and that many women who play video games are over the age of 18. Please try out this new and fun way to present your data in the classroom, as you can personalize it as much as you like with the free version! Rose Gamers
