Assessment Task 1: Piktochart (25%) Explore the role a technology can play in education. Create an infographic using Piktochart (http://piktochart.com) and then write a 250 word reflection. You have two tasks to complete for this assessment: 1. Create an infographic using Piktochart (15 marks) The topic of your infographic is one website, web-based tool or technology device (note this is a digital device) that could be used in an educational setting. For example; blogging, twitter, kahoot, I.W.B, or Edmodo, or so much more. Try to select a topic that you are not overly familiar with, use this assessment task as an opportunity to learn something new. Your infographic should cover the following three aspects with a balance of images and words (250 words): What it is (define and describe it) How you use it (this might include functions of the tool and the type of activities that could be used in the classroom) The pros and cons of the tool or device Include in-text and end references for the information and images used in your Piktochart. 2. Reflection (10 marks) Write a 250 word reflection on your learning experiences for this first assessment task. You may focus on the topic tool you selected and/or your experience using Piktochart. As you have been asked to create an infographic, use the following questions to help you plan what you will include in your reflection: What have you learnt? What specific (general and technological) skills did you use? What connections can you make between the assessment task and the weekly readings? Include in-text and end references for your reflection (APA 6th Edition format) *Please remember to use the help sheet Writing a reflection, which you will find on Blackboard. There is also a sample piktochart for you to look at to help you with understanding the layout. **Remember to look carefully at the rubric before and after you complete this task. Please note that the provided rubric is qualitative and not numerical in value. A qualitative rubric is designed to provide feedback on the marking criteria, not to calculate a grade. A grade will be provided separately and is based on the left hand criteria listed. You will be submitting your assessment via Blackboard (SEE BELOW), so you will need to create a word file. Your word file should include the following (in this order): A basic cover sheet with your student information. Your infographic, added in as a png to your word document. A URL link (web address) to the published version of your Piktochart infographic. The written content from your piktochart (please note: all written content of your assessment must be included in your word document AND piktochart to be marked – penalties will apply for missing content that is not included in both formats). A reflection with reference list. Note: Contact
if you need technical support Frequently Asked Questions: 1. How long should the piktochart be? Approximately the length of the sample piktochart PLUS an end-text reference section. No more than 6 panels including the end references panel. The word count total is 250 words (+/-10%). 2. What should my piktochart look like? Please review the sample piktochart to get an idea of how to structure balancing text and images. Remember that this is just one example and it does not have to look exactly like the sample. Also note, the content of sample piktochart does not meet the exact requirements of this assessment – so be sure to read the instructions of what is required carefully. 3. Do I need to reference? a. The piktochart? Yes you will need to include in-text references and end-text references to APA 6th edition in the piktochart. The end references should be the final panel of your Piktochart. Please see the guide available on the Curtin Library website: http://libguides.library.curtin.edu.au/referencing/apa See page 10 of this document for in-text and end-text referencing of images. b. The reflection? Yes you will need to include in-text and end-text references to APA 6th edition for the reflection. Please see the APA guide available on the Curtin Library website. 4. Why doesn’t the sample piktochart match the requirements of the assessment? The sample piktochart aims to give you some ideas to begin your piktochart. It does not represent all components or requirements of a high level assessment. 5. Do I have to use piktochart to create the infographic? Yes, you do. 6. Should I submit a link for the piktochart? Yes, please insert BOTH the piktochart image and link into a word document along with the reflection. 7. What do I submit? You submit 1 word document with all components cut and pasted into it, a) png of your piktochart b) URL to your published piktochart c) written content from your piktochart d) reflection and reference list. 8. Can I write the reflection in first person? Yes, you can write the reflection in 1st or 3rd person. 9. How do I insert the piktochart image into the word document? Thank you to one of the unit’s terrific tutors, Sam Tabbakh, here is a helpful video that can be accessed through this link: Inserting piktochart image into Word 10. Do I need to do a hanging indent and double spacing in my end text references in piktochart? Piktochart formatting of text can be difficult. Therefore for the PIKTOCHART ONLY you do not need to do a hanging indent and double spacing for the end text references. 11. How much can I go over or under the word count? You can go over/under the total word count by +/- 10%. This is acceptable. 12. Are references included in the word count? In-text references ARE included in the word count. The end reference list is NOT included in the word count. 13. Do I write my reflection on creating the piktochart OR on the topic I created the piktochart about? You can choose to reflect on either. I encourage you to choose the one where you learned the most so your reflection is richer. 14. Can I choose anything digital as a topic to create my piktochart on? The unit learning outcomes relate to the assessment. These outcomes relate to educational application of ICT. Therefore, educational topics, however, you are not limited in your choices of technological tools. One useful starting point site is: https://sman4kendari.sch.id/berita/50-education-technology-tools-every-teacher-should-know-about 15. Why do I need to write all my content from my piktochart in my word document? The word document is a static document and your tutor will leave comments throughout the written content of your work, as your piktochart is a live link and no comments can be left. It is important your tutor can read all of your content clearly and leave comments and give feedback where appropriate. Often images of piktocharts are too small to read clearly. 16. Can I include ‘live’ links in my Piktochart to address the topics? No, you cannot include live links to address the topics in the Piktochart. For example, you cannot place a link that takes you away from the Piktochart to explain the functions of your digital device, you need to explain the functions. Please note that you can include links for a section in your Piktochart such as Further Information. The links will not be entered, however, this will demonstrate additional information and thinking. Live links are strongly recommended for Assessment 2. 17. What spacing and font size should be used for the reflection? Please use 11 point Arial for your font and 1.5 spacing. This helps with readability and space for feedback from the marker
