Virtual Classroom Signs

Virtual Classroom with LEGO sign at the top spelling out Welcome Back in LEGO bricks.

This past summer, I had the pleasure of attending the TCEA hands-on Bitmoji webinar with Lisa Marie Bennet. We created a Bitmoji selfie and a virtual classroom stocked with a background, furniture, and even a bookshelf. This got me thinking. What if you wanted to create a unique sign to hang in your virtual classroom, library, or office? I am hoping Lisa Marie thinks this would be a great addition also. 

By the way, if you missed the hands-on webinar, you can still learn how to create a virtual classroom, library, or office with our online, self-paced Bitmoji Educator course. This five-module course includes lots of videos showing you exactly how to create your own Bitmoji avatar and then add it to your virtual space. Upon completion, you’ll have ideas on how to use your Bitmoji for teaching and learning and will have earned 12 CPE hours. The course is only $29 and includes a free year of TCEA membership.

Check out the artistic word generators and text generators below to create and “spiff-a-fy” a virtual sign. But be careful; you can spend as many hours creating a sign as you can creating your virtual classroom.

Flippity.net would be my first choice to generate a fun sign. There are many options available in Flippity, but you are looking for the Flippity Fun for Words. Each activity generator uses a Google Sheets to make cool stuff. This resource can’t be beaten as every idea comes with a demo, instructions, and a template to make the cool stuff. And it includes 13 different design choices.

Geo-Greeting is a fun use of Google Earth’s 3D satellite imagery. You can easily create a message with letter-shaped buildings. Jesse Vig is the letter finder. According to his bio, he is a software engineer and graduate student at the University of Minnesota studying Computer Science. A bonus: If you happen to come across any Google Map letters, send Jesse an email at geogreeting@gmail.com.

TextGiraffe Generator

The word Hello created in Text Giraffe.
Created by author.

The TextGiraffe site is a text generator – make your own logo website. I couldn’t locate much information on the usage of the site, but it does have over 100 different options. A word of caution if you are allowing students to use this site as a generator as the choices do include beer bottles and poker chips as logo generators.
