Chartify: Create Great Charts in Minutes

WHO: Teachers that are looking for an easy-to-use program to make data visually interesting in the classroom.

HOW: Head over to https://chartify.io/, no need to create an account. Click the “Try It for Free” button.  Select which type of chart you want to use first, there are a variety of options. Give the chart a title/subtitle and input the data.  The graphics will adjust accordingly as you enter the numbers. You can change the colors by using the selections on the left. The toolbar across the top allows the use to adjust a few settings such as, light/dark mode, number mode (number or %), aspect ratio, display subtitle, and add/remove data blocks.  It seems that each chart type allows for a different amount of data selections, so be sure to check out which one will work for you. When finished, simply click the “Generate Chart” button in the top right corner and then share a unique link, share to social media, or download the image file.

WHEN: Chartify could be used by the teacher in class to demonstrate data. Students could use it for projects of all sorts. As no account is required to create, any grade level could easily use this tool. As we move forward in this day of data analysis and instant gratification, charts and infographics allow teachers to show and explain information in an instant.

 

Currently Chartify is free but ad-supported.  The pricing page states:

Chartify is 100% FREE.

We will explore how to monetise this service at a later stage.

Future of Education Technology (FETC) 2018

I’ll be speaking at FETC 2018, and I’d like to see you there! FETC offers 600+ learning opportunities in a variety of formats all focused on using education technology to spark student creativity and enhance learning, including these which I’ll be presenting:

3D Printing in the Classroom – Workshop, January 23, 4-6pm
Learn all about the process Calvert Catholic Schools took to begin using MakerBot Replicator printer(s) with their students. This workshop will highlight the leadership team thought process for deciding which printer to purchase and what accessories, and it will explain the issues that popped up and slowed the process. You will learn the vocabulary of 3D printing, see examples of student work, and take a look at online sites to find lessons and inspiration. You will also experience a live 3D printer in action and start to tinker on your own and get hands-on experience by doing some basic CAD drawings using TinkerCad online.
