EDC111 – Infographic: Assignment 1

After my abysmal attempt at creating an infographic in EDC101 using Powerpoint, I finally have a chance to revisit creating an infographic! I have selected Piktochart software to create the infographic this time. I explored other software such as, which gave more free templates, but ultimately the software was not as easy to use as Piktochart has been.

What do you think of my Infographic?





From the future to the past

After the digital approach to curriculum explored in ‘EDC101 – Living & Learning in a Digital World’, I find myself exploring the history of schooling in the first few weeks of ‘EDC111 – Exploring & Contesting Curriculum’. Understanding the influences in schooling and curriculum in my own education has been encouraged, and I find myself fondly recalling memories of the mid-primary years of schooling. Perhaps this suggests that certain phases of childhood are better windows of opportunity for learning, or maybe the consistency of the same teacher and curriculum has been an influence on greater learning? This reflects the 2003 research of Marsh & Willis, that curriculum plans and experiences are interrelated but vary considerably (p. 13).
