Data Pic Tool

We created this tool so that pupils from the Schools involved in BBC School Report could experiment with a Data-driven infographic journalism format.

What is BBC School Report?

BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.

Using lesson plans and materials from this website, and with support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.
