Our new posters

My practicum student Jenni Stern and I have been playing with ideas for promoting new and traditional skills we think are important.  And we’ve been inspired by my good friend Gwyneth Jones’ Comic Life At-A-Glance tutorial posters.

Says Jenni:

Gwyneth’s posters guide students and teachers to work creatively. Her design is contemporary and eye catching, in the style of a graphic novel.  She inspired our Comic Life posters which we hope will be a resource for students throughout the research process. “Five Tests for a Good Thesis” and AASL’s “21st Century Learner” posters are geared towards high school students who are learning how to construct a research project.  We’ve added them to our new Research Process Guide and are posting them in our labs and we hope they will remind learners of our expectations as they research, create, share, participate, communicate, and grow.

  1. Joyce,

    Your posters are fabulous! I am in the process of creating some as well. I’m curious, where did you get the artwork for your persona in the thesis poster? Was that from a comic strip maker program?

  2. Aww Jenni & Joyce! The J team! I LOVE THEM! And I am so thrilled that you drank the comic Koolaid – I swear it’s addictive!!! BTW, I load mine up to Flickr so I can have multiple sizes – smaller ones for blogs that I link back to the larger or full size – Flickr – it’s a good thing! Oh and I LOVE the comic effect of the photos of students! Gonna have to snag that idea!

  3. Debbie, We used the character maker in GoAnimate– And Gwyneth, thanks! I do have a poster set on Flickr. Forgot to mention that!

  4. Thanks, Joyce! I need to spend more time with GoAnimate!

    These are great! I can’t wait to see what Debbie Natoli does with these. She is my incredibly talented librarian! I will check out the posters on flickr.
