Design Like a Pro: Desygner
I used the Desygner App to create a poster for my future classroom! Of course my first poster had to include a Dumbledore quotation... no hiding that from my students!
That said, I really enjoyed the Desygner app. It was free to download and the beginning tutorial was very straightforward. Once I spent a few minutes just "messing" with different options, I felt comfortable creating something. Desygner allows you to import your own images or search for images online. This would be so helpful if you were trying to create team or school posters that included images from your school. In addition, you could search online to find the school logo or the logo of an event you were trying to promote. The combination of online and personal image uploading was a definite highlight of the app!
Also, on a lesson-to-lesson basis, Desygner has so many templates and color, font, and design options that creating fun and interesting visual aids would be simple and fast! Keeping students interested comes from stimulating their senses. If a teacher is constantly creating new visuals for their students, there is better chance of attention... and retention!
Overall, I am a fan of this app and would recommend it to educators because it is user friendly and versatile.
