For more student infographics check out 12 Awesome Infographics Created with Piktochart.
This is the third semester of teaching Social Media Innovation where I have assigned an infographic project. The last two semester’s students worked in teams and created a single infographic using whatever software they wanted.
This semester we are using the piktochart.com for both individual and group projects. Each student will create two infographics individually, and then one as a team. For the first assignment the students were instructed to create an infographic on any topic they wanted–the idea was just to get accustomed to using piktochart. The results exceeded my expectations as quite a few students created awesome informative infographics!
Here’s a selection of 12 that stood out as good examples of student work and may be relevant to a wider audience.
The Birth of the iPhone
It’s hard to keep up with the fast-paced evolution of technology. Every week, a new gadget hits the market and consumers are constantly looking for the latest and greatest electronic to satisfy their needs. This infograph takes a look at the life of Apple Inc.’s iPhone, from it’s first model released in 2005, to it’s latest phone, the iPhone 4s. It’s amazing how far the common cell phone has evolved in just a short time span. And thanks to the iPhone, a new standard for quality and reliability has been set.
Hyundai started to sell cars in the U.S. since 1986. For a little over 2 decades, this Korean car company grew faster than any other car firms that we have seen. In such short period of time, they made huge refinements in car design, performances, engine efficiency and car technology. Their tremendous success also came from numerous marketing efforts; Hyundai portrayed their customers as smart consumers, people who choose value over brand recognition. Hyundai was the first manufacture to provide the industry leading 10 years/100,000 mile warranty and Hyundai’s assurances. These programs provided a piece of mind for consumers. Hyundai’s growth is transparent on their global sales and increase in model lines, it is also reflected on their raising stock price.
Mutation of Nintendo and Social Media
This infographic displays the evolution of Nintendo over the past two decades and the state video games and consoles are in today. Social media has helped increased this growth and today acts as a community to not only promote and advertise video games, but provide reviews from other fellow gamers. Today, when people search for a product, they heavily rely on the opinions and experiences of their peers. Social media provides this place and has in effect altered the video game industry and the way gamers communicate.
