Teachers are always looking for new and creative options for their students to be able to demonstrate and share their learning.  Why not have students create an infographic to explain a topic through images, graphs, and text?

Piktochart is available as a ChromeApp or simply visit the website directly.  Students can create an infographic and publish the link to share their content with others or download an image file (see example below).
