The Path to being a Greenhand with Piktochart

 The Path to Being a Greenhand with Piktochart

For some time, I’ve been intrigued about the efficacy and creativity of infographics.  Where else can you provide clear and concise information in a way that is easily read and fun to explore?  There are many sites that provide opportunities to create infographics; such as, visual.ly, infogr.am, and easel.ly.  I chose to begin working with Piktochart due to its ease of use.  I believe this would be a great way to have students summarize content for a unit.  Here I created a quick infographic on how to become a Greenhand.  As we grow closer to the spring semester and banquet season, degree applications are upon us.  Hopefully this can help streamline your process.

For ideas to create your own infographics, I like to browse Pinterest to find ideas.  You can check out my “Being Mrs. C – TeachAg” Pinterest Board for some agriculturally related infographics.   Enjoy!

Guest Blogging and Spending Time as the “Penn State TeachAg Technologist”:  I am happy to be guest blogging and spending time as the Penn State TeachAg Technologist.  Since October, I have been given the opportunity to provide technology tips, guest blog posts and any technology support to fellow agriculture teachers.  I have greatly enjoyed working in this capacity and find that I am at my greatest when I have a defined purpose and working towards a goal.  However, it has taken time away from my personal blog, here.  I will be posting some of my posts from the other platforms I am working with for my other role.  For now, please visit my Technology site on the AEE website for weekly technology tips.
