Design an infographic. tell a story.

100 years ago on November 11th, the armistice was signed, bringing the First World War to a close. We invite you to take up the challenge of remembering the conflict in a completely new way. Join students from across the country telling the story of the war using infographics.

We challenge you to translate what you've learned into a beautiful infographic. To take numbers and statistics, and make them visual, relatable, understandable, more human. You'll learn something new about the war, be it the human cost, the food our troops ate, or how animals played vital roles on the front lines. It's a challenge that will test your research, analytical and design skills. Be bold, ambitious, and try something totally new.

We invite all students (aged 5 - 25) to get creative. Design an infographic of World War 1 on your iPad or Mac and submit your design as part of our national WW1 infographic challenge. There are prizes for the best submission in each age group and we are co-ordinating a public exhibition and published book showing the best designs.

Why not coordinate a classroom activity where every student can research and explore World War 1. We’d love to hear how your school is meeting the challenge and you can get support from our Leading Apple Distinguished Educator.

Open to everyone, we encourage parents and grandparents to support young learners in their family. iPad offer a fantastic opportunity for independent learning – and we want to support this development. Register as a parent or guardian and we’ll send you updates and advice on how best to support student learning.

We’d love to collaborate. If you are a representative from DofE, LEA, the armed forces, Help for Heroes, a museum curator or author who wants to join forces and help students learn more about WW1, then get in touch.

(and what makes a great one!)

Infographics may be based on pie charts, bar graphs, dot matrix, and tables (to name a few) but with these important differences.

Planet

(like the size of planets in the solar system or the number of stars in a galaxy)
Human

Makes data more user friendly.

Condenses

Condenses a lot of information onto one (sometimes one very big) page.

Lightbulb

Can make data easier to understand through rich visuals.

bubbles

Uses design principles such as colour, shape and proportion to bring numbers to life.

it's a spade

...the list is endless! How many more can you think of?
