Lately, I have been working on our school’s EAP program and I am having students work with data in articles as well as create them on their own. I choose to use sites that don’t require students to give away any information such as name and email. Here are 6 sites that you can use registration-free:
- ChartGo: Create a bar, line, pie, or area graph in 2D or 3D. Options also include dimensions and orientation. Enter your data and you are then given a URL to edit and one to share. You can also embed the chart on your website or blog. Simple, yet nice looking results.
- Chartle: This site has the most options available including bar, pie, line, scatter plots, Venn diagrams, radar charts, organizational charts, tables, timelines, motion charts, gauges, and maps. Options for dimensions, data type, and either 2D or 3D shapes. Charts are hosted in the gallery or can be embedded on your website or blog.
- Piecolor: Create a piechart you can download. Very simple to use and can be in 2D or 3D. No hosting or embedding available.
- Graph.tk: This is a mathematical chart creator. Type in your formulas and the charts is created automatically. Beautiful results that can be downloaded. No host or embed functions available.
- Hohli: Create bar, line, and pie charts along with Venn diagrams, scatter plots and radar charts. Choose your chart size, colour, and add your data. The chart is hosted as an image, you can also download or embed to your website or blog.
- Kids’ Zone: Make a bar, line, area, pie or XY graph. Choose your shading and colour, add your data, labels, and fonts, and then download or email yourself the link.
How do you use charts in the classroom? What tools do you use? Leave a comment below, send me a tweet at @nathanghall, or email me using the contact form on this site. Thanks!
