Tool #28: Block Poster

Type:  Print giant posters (to piece together) on 8×11.5 paper

Teacher:  All levels

Student Use:  Images for the classroom, Spirit posters for the hallway

Block Poster takes the image you upload and blows it up to the size you specify.  Then, it prints the blown up poster on 8×11.5 paper for you to piece together. 

So, if I wanted to create a large version (4 feet by 6 feet) of the Glogster poster I created earlier, I upload my Glogster jpg and come up with this:


This photo will print on 30 pieces of paper, creating a large poster of my photo.  I piece them together and presto!  (Thanks, TS, for sharing this cool tool!)

Tool #14: Glogster

Type:  Image/Sign creation

Teacher:  All Levels

Student Use:  Variety of creation and reflection activities

Glogster makes poster creation easy.  You can use images from the Glogster library, or you can upload your images.  Animations, video and music can be added, too, if you want to keep the poster in digital format.

Cool for signs and posters specific for your classroom. 

I spent less than 5 minutes and created the image below.
