In Current Events (in December) you received an article called, "All Eyes on the Euro Crisis"
Read the article, complete the "On the Lines" questions, and the "Between the Lines" question
Then in a BLOG POST or in a GLOG interactive poster, you are going to create an infograph to show the information contained in the news story. So what's a infograph? It is a diagram that uses pictures rather than words to convey information (although occasionally single words may be used to label elements of the sociogram) and symbols, such as arrows, to show the connections among the facts and details.
A good infograph includes all important points, clearly shows relationship among the different points, and is easy to understand.
In your Infograph, you must include responses to the following questions...
1.What are the causes of the Euro Crisis?
2. What is the Euro Crisis?
3. What are the effects of the Euro Crisis?
This will be due January 20th....
REMEMBER YOU WILL NEED YOUR ACCOUNT FOR EDUGLOGSTER.ORG.
You and your partner(s) will choose one of the glog accounts to use for your Infograph, then collaborate
after you GLOG, YOU CAN BOTH EMBED YOUR GLOG INTO YOUR BLOG... No really!!! Maybe even create a link from your glog to your blog... Imagine an endless look of your thoughts on the Euro crisis!
Samples and examples of sociograms...
So what's up with these infographs??
Infographs are a creative pictorial way to display information. You can create an infographic using glogster... check out the infographs below... now think about how you can create an Infograph using glogster... and honestly... glogster rocks for one more reason... imagine you can even create an interactive element to your infograph... video and music!!
To create images for your infograph, use sumo paint...
* Use Sumo paint to create an image on line and save as a jeg in your pictures, then embed in your glogster.
