The Graphic Classroom 10MT | The 10-Minute Teacher Show | The 5-day a week podcast for remarkable but very busy teachers. by Vicki Davis: Teacher, Blogger, Edtech Experimenter Webonauts Internet Academy Come play again later! Come play again tomorrow! How'd You Do That? Creating & Sharing Digital Flyers, Posters & Infographics. It's been almost 8 years since I created my first digital flyer for this site. Ever since, every time I post one, I get questions about how it was created.

That said, the very first digital flyer I ever made was inspired by the work of Carl Harvey. Eventually, I graduated from MS Word (sorry Bill!) These days, I use Canva almost exclusively as my creation tool of choice. Finally, let me just say that I've never, ever endorsed a product on this blog in exchange for any kind of compensation - and I never will.
