As an Instructional Technology Specialist, I wanted to motivate my teachers to find digital tools that could replace paper tasks in order to conserve resurces. We were making so many copies and wasting resources that I created these poster and hung them above the copy machine. I used Power Point to create the posters and printed them with our school's poster printer. If you don't have a poster printer you can easily print smaller versions to hang.
The first slide is a poster that uses the amount of copies we made in a year to determine how many trees "died." You can edit this slide with your school's name. It doesn't matter if the number of copies is exact. The messge that excessive copies wastes natural resources will still be clear. The second slide calculates how much time the average teacher spends making copies and encourages them to use clickers to save time and paper. We have SMART Response clickers, but I have changed the wording to be generic.
These posters could be useful to admistrators or technoloy managers looking to encourage teachers to conserve resources. However, they could also be used by a teacher who is teaching a unit on conservation, natural resources, or the environment.
