Growth Mindset Posters with Adobe Spark Post



On Thursday afternoons, I work with a select group of children from KS2 who have the responsibility of being our first group of digital champions. Their role includes supporting teachers and other pupils when using technology in class. As one of the first tasks, we looked at sharing some motivational and inspiring thoughts around the school. The students wanted to help other children and give them a positive outlook towards their learning.

I set them the task of creating some growth mindset posters that they could then display around the school for other pupils to view and appreciate. The app the children used was Adobe Spark Post. It is one of three FREE apps from Adobe available on tablets as well as through the web.

The app is fantastic for creating posters, quotes and graphics. There are a range of options from adding background pictures to editing the text and changing the design in different ways. There is even the option to turn the poster into a short animation.

I was so impressed with some of the pupils ideas and designs. Here are a couple of my favourites:









FEEL FREE TO PRINT THESE AND USE THEM IN YOU CLASSROOM. IT WOULD BE INCREDIBLE IF SOME OF MY PUPILS SAW THEIR POSTERS BEING VALUED AND USED IN OTHER SCHOOLS! PLEASE TWEET OR MESSAGE ME WITH A PICTURE.

We discussed how much the design can add to the poster, through colour, size, how the image should link to the text etc. The children were then able to print their designs and find the best place to put their posters for other pupils to see. The digital champions loved the idea that their work would help motivate their fellow peers! A great little activity that linked PSHCE and Computing.

I had to chuckle with this example. Although I agree with it, it didn't fit with our values to print and put up! It now lives in the staffroom! 😂
