Tables test

Tables test


A simple multiplication practise site where learners can choose from 6 difficulty
levels and answer all the questions as quickly as they can. Players answer the
questions using changing buttons, which means no typing is needed, making it
idea to use on interactive whiteboards. I also like the timer on the right that
shows how long it took to answer the questions.
Very Cool!!

Block Posters

Block Posters



Have you ever wished you could increase the impact of a poster or photograph for your classroom by making it much, much bigger than the paper in your printer?

Block Posters is a free online tool where you simply upload your image in jpg or gif format

Then choose the paper type your printer uses and select the number of pages wide you’d like your enlarged poster to be.  BlockPosters will then calculate how big that will be so you can adjust the setting to fit the display space you will have available.

Then, having uploaded the image, the site will then create a series of PDFs ready for sending to your printer, with overlaps so that when you print them you can trim and stick them together. And there you have a very large poster just using your ordinary printer.


Computer Quotes and posters

Computer Quotes



Computer Quotes comprises a series of posters with quotes about various aspects of
