Session Description

Discover effective visual design techniques that you can apply to a variety of printable creations. These creations are not ordinary printouts! Learn to make tear-off sheets, table toppers, bookmarks, multipage posters, door hangers, brochures, dice, scratch cards, and foldable mini-books. These kinds of productions can be a great for teachers to package instructional materials and to connect online learning with the physical learning environment. Furthermore, the printable examples we explore can be made by students. There are lots of possibilities to explore when we turn our digital designs into tangible products.
