Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Create Wall Art with Block Posters

February22

Ever wish you could take a really cool image, infographic or flyer and transform it into a classroom poster?  If so, you’re about to meet your new tech crush! Check out Block Posters, a free web-based tool, educators (and students) can utilize to create huge personalized posters using a standard inkjet or laser printer.

Here’s how the magic happens: Upload an image to the Block Posters interface (jpg or gif format only), determine the desired printing preferences (number of pages, paper size, orientation), click the “Create My Poster!” button and voila! You’re ready to download the file containing your poster. All that’s left to do is print the file and assemble a giant poster that will rock your classroom! It’s that simple! No kidding!

Check out the example I created using the SAMR Model Apps graphic shown below.

This poster could be used to ensure that apps are being used in the classroom to transform teaching and learning.

Classroom Connection:

Whenever you’re in need of a poster—as an instructional tool, to promote school services or events, to create displays of student projects or maybe to add some “eye candy” to your classroom—Block Posters is the perfect solution for you!

This tool could also be used to create a giant jigsaw puzzle. How cool is that?
