9 Steps to Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs

I have been sharing a great deal of educational posters here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. I love using posters with my students and I know many of you love them too. Sometimes it seems like we can not find the exact poster we want for our class and this is when we need to use our techy skills to craft our own posters. The process is not very hard and anybody with the rudimentary tech knowledge can do it in a matter of minutes. I have already featured a post containing several web tools to help you create your posters. However, I recently got some requests from some of my readers asking me about the tool I used in creating the posters I shared in my Freebies section. The answer is Google Docs.Google Docs has a drawing canvas that is really excellent for creating posters for your classroom and here is a step by step guide on how to do it. Enjoy
