What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Piktochart is a tool older kids can use to create infographics for any kind of school or personal project. It's all about giving potentially boring or dry info a bit of pizzazz. Filling in chosen templates, kids have freedom to present their info however they like, which requires some serious thought and could be a bit daunting for younger users. It's generally geared toward adults in the workplace creating business presentations, but clearly lends itself to kid use for classroom projects and assignments.

What's it about?
Teens first choose from available templates -- eight are available with a free account. Combining charts, graphs, text, and graphics, teens can easily assemble and present info using the drag-and-drop interface. Users can export infographics as image files or share their creations via URL, email, and social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Is it any good?
The design is fantastic, with modern, charming icons and fonts, and it's possible to make seriously high-quality infographics with Piktochart. That said, it's not totally intuitive and the guidance offered can be confusing. But if they poke around enough, teens can figure out how to use Piktochart for school projects, class presentations, and maybe even just for fun.
