This assignment was so much fun that I couldn’t chose just one to share. Here is my poster made in motivator.
The hardest part was deciding which of my pictures to use. I like the ALA read posters. Maybe I could get teachers to recommend students who enjoyed a book to make posters. (Is this idea copyrighted? I couldn’t justify the cost of the software, but would love to do it with Motivator)
Since I didn’t use badgemaker http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/badge.phpback in week 3, I decided to try it. This will end the excuses I’ve made for not having IDs for the aides and my yearbook staff. As a classroom app, I could see it added to any assignment that called for learning biographical information about historical or fictional characters. Where there isn’t a picture, the student could draw one and scan it for the ID.

Images made with the comic strip generator http://www.comicstripgenerator.com/ and the license generator on Imagechef http://www.imagechef.com/ can be used to humorously get across a point.
