Photos…#EdublogsClub

This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and educational technology enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it (via social media w/ #edublogsclub or posting a link as a comment to that topic’s posting on the Edublogger site) to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt. 

Last year, I read a post from Richard Wells on Star Wars posters for school using LEGOs. Well, new year, new posters, so a new post from him.

With this week’s prompt having to deal with photos, I figured this would be timely. The post I wrote last year, inspired by EduWells, utilized quotes from, then released, “A Force Awakens.” Well, new year, new movie (“Rogue One”), new posters!


I’m going to again propose a challenge for you & your students, have them select a quote from a favorite movie of theirs, then design a ‘poster’ applying that quote to a topic/content area. See how creative they can be!

If you take the challenge, please link to images of the posters in the comments below, I would love to view your or your students’ work.

    Hi Dan

    I’m wondering if it would be better to embed the Google photos rather than add them as an image?

    The text doesn’t stand out when you add as an image whereas the text immediately grabs you when added as an embed. I’ve switched your first image over to an embed so you can compare the difference (hope that was okay?). I can switch it back if you prefer or embed the rest of the images if you like?

      Thank you Sue, I posted this over the weekend using the app on my iPad. I figured I would need to go back in and fix it. I will make sure to change the others, it does look better.

        Hi Dan, glad you didn’t mind. The images had me intrigued as I wanted to work out which option would make them display better. After trying a range of different approaches I worked out embed looked the best and I hadn’t thought about how handy it is to be able to embed images from Google photos. Only downside is Google doesn’t make their embeds easy to work out.

        It also helped me with my post!
