Your Piktochart monthly product update for July is here!
We’re thrilled to share what our team of communication designers, marketers, and product folks prepared for you last month.
Inspired by our users in the education space, we decided to spend more time creating templates and resources for teachers and students in July and August.
These templates will definitely help kick the school year into high gear for everyone as it’s back to school for most teachers and students in July or August.
Keep scrolling to see templates for lesson plans, group projects, worksheets, class syllabus, and more! This month’s update has a little something for every teacher, professor, and student out there.

Templates for group project and group work
Group work projects in the classroom have been shown to play an essential role in promoting intrinsic motivation among students.
In the classroom setting, this means that students are more interested in engaging in an activity because of internal rewards like genuine interest in a subject or a love of learning.
According to a 2018 report by the American Institutes for Research (AIR), group work and collaborative learning also support equity in education.
Finally, group work also develops social-emotional learning among students, enabling them to develop soft skills such as empathy, self-regulation, critical thinking, and communication skills.
If you’ve been planning to add more group work projects in class, we have the right templates below!
The great thing about these templates is you can customize each presentation slide for any school group work you have in mind.
