How can we visually communicate statistical data about a profession using desktop publishing software?

This is the question our MYP5 students are exploring through the investigation phase of a Careers + Design interdisciplinary project.

In this phase of the project they are using Evernote to document the research process, which encompasses gathering information on;

  • key facts about selected career
  • inspirational infographics
  • principles and elements of design
  • use of the Adobe Creative Suite

Ultimately the infographics will be displayed at a careers exhibition with the intention of assisting other Grade 10 students with career options.

Check out the guidebook below for further information on this project.

Stayed tuned for follow up posts on their progress.
