Silly Infographics

Project Published 1/13/16 Last updated on 6/8/17

Students use infographics to add to a story. The idea is to juxtapose formal graph tools and humorous unimportant data. They could use this as a chapter illustration for a story they are writing or just as an interesting item on its own.

Students might have created charts in Word or online Infographic generators, however making the charts in Illustrator are an easy task and they can then play around with the customising features. This task is ideally suited to a group activity. Students might need to have existing story ideas to work from or make a few mind maps of ideas before they sit down infront of the computer screen and get writers block.
