Venngage: new and useful online program

While visiting Hillfield private school the other day with the grade eight students at my school, I came across many different grade eight presentation displays. We went to learn more about ways to help the environment and after hearing an excellent WE presentation, we were able to explore the grade eight presentations. They all worked on various topics such as the liquid in ice packs, growing habitats for various plants, stereotyping, etc. There were over 50 topics and they were all made on these beautiful display posters. I had to ask the students where they had designed these posters since they looked beyond professional. They had used a program called venngage. A nearby teacher said they if you want them poster size you need to print them with an outside company such as kinkos but if you want them just your standard size of paper then you can print them off any computer.

After leaving that conference, I went online right away to check out the program. There are many things you can do with it that will not cost you any money at all. Some more exciting features such as saving your work to a PDF would involve you paying the monthly costs. After playing around with the program I discovered exciting features such as adding bar graphs to the document, pie graphs, text and various professional looking icons that make the page stand out.

I taught my grade four/five class how to use this program to display their recent data management project results. I will attach a few photos of their finished work. It took them less than an hour and it was a neat and organized way for them to display their results for their final data project. An awesome program worth checking out!
