Infographics can support understanding and meaning making. Consider how your students might express themselves in this format. Here’s an example of a common format, also known as an infoposter:

Recorded Student Presentations

In LTEC 112, Dr. Ari Eichelberger has her online students learn about presentation skills and slide design then record an online presentation. Project instructions and grading rubric.

This is a presentation LTEC 112 student Cole Fraser created using Screencastify.

The support provided to LTEC 112 students for their presentations:

Documentary Film

In this example a student created a documentary about the criminalization of poverty in Hawaiʻi. She uploaded it to YouTube and used it to introduce her work during her Advanced Women Studies capstone presentation.

Narrated Slideshows

Most students are familiar with creating slides.  Students can use PowerPoint to create multimedia products by adding pictures, video and sound. In STE 322C Dr Rosela Balinbin Santos has her students choose a place of interest then create a “photo journal” about it by narrating a PowerPoint.  Photo Journal project description and rubric.

Multimedia Webpages

In her FSHN 185 Human Nutrition class, Dr Kainoa Fialkowski has her students complete the Kapuna Project. The project is a multimedia webpage documenting a traditional food from their home culture. Students post pictures, nutritional information, and a video in which they interview a kupuna (elder) about the dish. Kupuna Project Description.
