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!
We all know our students have grown up with technology and it is more important to provide unique opportunities to learn; such as, using animation in the classroom like the FFA Creed in Flash. Many schools are utilizing 1:1 or BYOD initiatives to harness that innate understanding. As I build my technological repertoire, I thought it would be fun to create a series using Flash to help with learning the FFA Creed.
I am just learning this program and the video/link I have provided is very raw and basic, but maybe it can be of use to someone out there. I plan on doing the rest of the Creed in just the same way. Hopefully you see a progression of creative usage within Flash, or as the school year rolls around…it might just have to stay basic! Here’s to all our audio and visual learners!

Freebies…freebies…freebies….Currently, I am teaching myself how to use Adobe Illustrator. It is challenging to say the least, but I am enjoying my time learning another platform for creativity. I thought in an effort to help organize my weeks to come, I’d start off doing a series of “to-do” lists in various formats. And better yet, why not share them!
