PosterMyWall: Free Tool Makes Promoting Your Events Quick and Easy
When I became a school social worker I never envisioned I’d be spending so much time making posters and flyers. I always seem to be promoting something through my involvement with school clubs, parent events, winter clothing drives, and monthly awareness activities. While I enjoy using technology and opportunities to be creative, I really don’t have 20 minutes to spend making posters when there’s students to see, homes to visit, data to collect, reports to write, etc.
PosterMyWall has allowed me to make beautiful promotional flyers in just a few minutes. They have 100’s of pre-made templates that make poster creation as easy as swapping out a few lines of text. Best of all, they offer free accounts for educators.
Educators can create and download free flyers that are suitable for printing on standard letter sized paper (8.5 x 11 in). Larger print sizes can be downloaded for a small free.
BONUS: If you set up an educator account you can have students use the service to create their own posters! You can use this within an intervention, service-learning project, or club you sponsor. Learn more about classroom accounts.

- Students create educational materials on what they learned in an intervention
Do you have any creative ideas for how to use this service with students? We’d love to hear them. Leave a comment!
