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.

Google Certified Educator - Level 2 Exam Passed!!!

Passed the Level 2 exam tonight! Finished up in plenty of time with 37 minutes left on the clock. Checked off that certification on my bucket list for this year. After studying for Level 1, I decided to just go for Level 2. Studied the scenarios closely in the training lessons and just went for it. Glad I did!

Now to frame my beautiful certificate for my library wall.
