Looking at our stats
Next, I asked them to see if they could figure out where to find out which countries the viewers were from. After some investigating, learners hopped onto the Audience section and were surprised with the results. The students exclaimed over the countries. Some had visitors from more than 6 different countries.
Infographic timeNow that the learners were feeling motivated and proud of their blog statistics, it was time to share it on their blog. I decided to introduce the class to creating Infographics. When we learnt about Infographics in the MDTA, I had created one about my global audience (read about it here). I used my infographic as a model of how they could present their statistics. My learners loved the look of the infographic and were eager to begin creating their own. We used Canva, as I have found it to be easy to use and very effective. I also like how you can upload your own images for free on Canva, which is something that you can't do on other infographic creators.

Summing it upI was a little nervous to introduce a new way to create a DLO, however this was the perfect opportunity. The students loved using Canva, and some grasped the concept of using less text and symbols better than others. This is something I can continue to work on. The class was really engaged in this lesson and they loved seeing their statistics. I do think they felt pretty empowered and motivated. I am hoping this will motivate them to want to share their learning (instead of me always telling them to). Stay tuned!
I also decided to create an updated infographic about my global audience, enjoy!
