Pic Collage: Quick & Beautiful Graphs

Pic Collage: Quick & Beautiful Graphs

Looking for a quick way to create a graph in your classroom? I’ve written about using Haiku Deck to create graphs before (see that post here), but if your looking to make a picture type graph, Pic Collage is a great tool!

We’ve made sevearl graphs with it, and it’s so much fun to pass around an iPad during a warm up activity letting students vote. Then after the warm up, everyone has voted, and you’re ready to analyze the data!

Here’s how …

Set up your questions and chioces.

Then I visit Pixabay.com  from a web browser. When you find a free, creative commons licenced image, tap and hold to bring up the menu. Save the image to your camera roll.

Next add the image to your Pic Collage graph. Be sure you have the image the size you would like for it to be, then double tap it. Tap “Copy”. You’ll be able to do this as many times as you want, that way each of your students has a picture to vote with.

Then have as much fun as you can stand collecting data! Here’s a few we’ve made.
