3. Make Posters
Students can submit work
In this video, you will create three posters, each with a tip for good digital habits.
Then, you will share these posters digitally and print and post them around your school.
These posters will highlight the importance of balancing digital activities with other activities.
This lesson uses Google Drawings.
Google Drawings is a design application where you can create original artwork, like a poster.
You could also apply these skills and concepts in any graphic design application, or even on poster board.
To start this project, group members will sit around one computer.
Pick a student to create the project.
All group members should give input about design choices and the information in the project, even though only one student will edit the project on the computer.
To begin, have one group member: Create a new drawing, And rename it.
Then, resize the drawing.
Next, make a copy of your drawing and rename it for your second poster.
Repeat the steps for the third poster.
Your group will create three posters with a different tip on each of the three drawings.
Then share each of the three drawings with group members.
Later in this lesson, you and your group members will collaborate digitally from your own computers.
Return to your first drawing.
Insert word art, and type your title.
Word art allows you to add borders and custom dimensions to your title text.
Then choose a font....
Set the font fill color...
and border color.
Resize your title.
Then, reposition it.
Add a text box for your first digital wellbeing tip.
Next, type your first tip.
Choose a font.
And center your text in the text box.
Now, add a background color...
add a background gradient...
Or use text boxes and shapes to build a multi-colored background.
Next, add an image to illustrate your tip.
Search for an image and make sure you have the right to use the image.
Position and resize your image.
Add a second image if you’d like.
Once you’ve finished the first poster, each group member should return to their own computer and open the shared drawings.
Then, collaborate with your group to create two more posters with additional tips.
You will all open the file and work in it at the same time from your own computers.
As you work together, you can see each others’ changes.
When you’re finished, print your posters to display them around your school.
Finally download the files to share your drawings online, on social media, or attach them to email.
Your posters will help people in your school make healthy choices about device use.
Now, it’s your turn: Create, rename, and resize a new drawing for your first poster, Make two copies of the drawing to create additional posters, Share the drawings with your group, Insert Word Art and a text box for your title and tip, Add at least one related image, And print, download, and share your posters around your school and online.
