Hello everyone! So glad to be back with you for another week of Tech Tips! 🙂 I thought about posting on things to help you create digital products over the summer. So, the first place that we’ll start is with digital paper.
What is digital paper?
Well, it’s paper that is made electronically. You can use it to scrapbook or make cards. Lots of people who create resources for their classrooms use it to spice up cover pages or to create centers. When you print the image out on cardstock or regular paper, it has the appearance of patterned paper. There are lots of programs that can be used to create these papers. Illustrator and Adobe are among the top names that come to mind.
So how do you use them?
I prefer to use them as a background on cover pages, but I also like to layer them as well. You can even use them to spice up manipulatives in the literacy and math games you create for your classroom! If you are new to creating your own products, and you’d like to know more about enhancing your products with digital papers, check out the tutorial below! 🙂
