Building Your Librarian PLN

Shared lunch with a roomful of school librarians at METC in St. Charles, Missouri today. Here is the slideshow I presented that gives local Missouri librarians options to connect with each other. Live links to join the METC ISTE affiliate, TL Virtual Cafe events, and the St. Louis Suburban School Librarians upcoming February 27th event are included. Have fun making new connections with your PLN.

How to Design Posters in Google Drawings

Google Drawings is one of my favorite Google Apps. It's great place to create images to use for posters, infographics, and slides.  Let's start with a propaganda poster project that started out as an English Language assignment that connected with a Social Studies unit.  

Always nice to make those connections across the curriculum. The following slides present the background for the propaganda poster assignment.  Besides Google Drawing, there are directions on using Poster Generators such as Keep Calm-o-matic  posters.

If you want to use the same idea for another type of Drawing project, just follow the tutorial below. The slides are self-explanatory plus there is a detailed video tutorial.
