This week we celebrate the library, an institution that has changed the lives of millions of people by making information free and accessible to the public.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
In honor of National Library Week this week, TeachHUB.com and Clever Girls Collective partnered to create the “First Infographic Made By Kids.” The infographic was unveiled today and includes the results of surveying kids on a range of topics, from their top fictional character (Greg Hefley of Diary of a Wimpy Kid), to their easiest subject (which was, surprisingly, math in all grade levels).
The infographic was the first for TeachHUB.com who partnered with leading social media agency, Clever Girls Collective, to collect the data. Clever Girls Collective accessed their network of over 8,000 bloggers to connect with twenty kindergarten through 5th grade teachers. Those teachers then surveyed more than 1,500 students collectively for the results.
“This week we celebrate the library, an institution that has changed the lives of millions of people by making information free and accessible to the public,” said Joe Federer, Director of Social Media for the K-12 Teachers Alliance. “We wanted a light-hearted yet impactful way to honor libraries and the books that fill them. What better way to do that than by hearing from kids themselves?”
“As a mother and former inner-city elementary school teacher, I understand how important education and books are for our children,” said Stefania Pomponi, Founder and President of Clever Girls Collective. “We were excited to leverage the teachers in our blogger network and allow them to work with their students to create such a fun and interesting infographic. Let’s all get out and visit our local library this week.”
Other survey findings of the “First Infographic Made By Kids” includes:
- 51% of K-5th Graders prefer to read on a tablet or computer.
- Their top 3 “favorite things about school” include #1 Field Trips, #2 My Teacher and #3 Learning new things.
- 22% Wish they could learn more about art.
“Clever Girls Collective flexed their ability to activate highly-targeted groups within their network and those teacher bloggers helped us gather over 1,500 surveys from students,” added Federer. “I loved working with Clever Girls Collective on this project because they’ve proven to be much more a partner than just a blog network. They are committed to education, as we are.”
