I Made Some Free Star Wars Inspired Digital Citizenship Posters

Free Star Wars inspired Digital Citizenship postersAs I mentioned in my previous post, I’m looking forward to going back into the classroom this upcoming school year to teach middle school Digital Learning and Digital Video Production. This past week I went in and checked out my classroom. The lab is a total blank canvas just itching for me to decorate! In the Digital Learning lab we’ll be focused on digital citizenship, basic troubleshooting, navigating resources effectively, and evaluating credible sources online. I felt like the room needed artwork that would refer to these topics, but of course with some geeky flair. So I started creating some of my own posters, mashing up my favorite Star Wars quotes with digital literacy concepts. I’m quite pleased with the results and thought other teachers out there would appreciate them, too!

I whipped up these posters using the free Star Jedi font by Boba Fonts and character art that I purchased and used with permission by IcemiloClipart on Etsy. The posters were created for fun and free personal classroom use only, and of course Star Wars characters are property of Lucasfilm LTD. There are ten posters total:

  • “I find your lack of privacy settings disturbing.” (Vader)
  • “Not controlling your digital footprint? I have a bad feeling about this.” (Leia)
  • “It’s a trap!” (Beware of online scams) – Admiral Ackbar
  • “Beep bop boop.” (Verifying credible sources is cool) – R2D2
  • These aren’t the search results you’re looking for. (Use effective search strategies for best results.) – C3P0 & R2D2
  • “The internet. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.” (Obi-Wan Kenobi)
  • “The internet is permanent. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.” (Vader)
  • “Post that inappropriate photo online you will not.” (Yoda)
  • “I love your troubleshooting skills.” – “I know.” (Leia and Han)
  • “Rrrrrrawwwrgh! Arrrrrghhh!” (I know you didn’t just tag me in a photo without my permission!) – Chewbacca

You can grab the posters here. They are all full resolution/size JPG images (hosted on Google Photos now) that can be printed at 8.5″ x 11.” I hope you enjoy them, and may the Force be with you in the upcoming school year!

Update 3/24/2017: The old link broke, so the download link above has been updated to provide access for downloading these again. Thanks for letting me know!

    Some of these messages aren’t talked about enough. Great work on these!

  7. Barbie says:

    I would like to use these posters in my classroom but our attorney says we need to verify that the clip art creator is okay with us reproducing these. You purchased and were given permission to use these but, does that permission extend beyond you to third party users?
    thanks

    • Mrs. K says:

      Hi there!

      When I purchased the clip art for use I let the seller know how I was planning to use them and asked if that was okay, and as long as I am distributing the files for free and and not giving people the actual individual clip art files separately that I purchased, that was alright. You are printing a creation I made with those files and am distributing free, but you are not receiving the separate little clip art files for the individual characters themselves. Does that make sense? If you want to print and use my posters as-is, you are allowed to do that. If you want to manipulate the character clip art to make your own designs, you would need to purchase those individual clip art files from the seller like I did.

    Our school loves these posters!
    Do you give public schools permission to send your Star Wars digital citizenship pdfs to our in-house school district graphics department to blow them up to larger sizes like 22×18 and 11×17 and then hang them up in our labs and MakerSpace as fun, educational reminders to our staff and students about said topics? … plus Star Wars is awesome! :) and can motivate kids
    *FYI: We do not plan on editing or alternating them at all- just enlarge them and hang them up around our school.

    • Mrs. K says:

      Hi Mike!

      I just replied to this request from Barb in the comments a moment ago, and just replied to your email to give you the specifics. The license for use of the clip art files of the individual Star Wars characters that I purchased gave me the ability to use them in making posters, teacher materials, etc. and I was given permission via Etsy from IceMilo to freely share these posters with other teachers to use, as long as I was not freely giving away the individual clip art files themselves, but just the posters I made with them, including the copyright info. (On the bottom.) I see no reason why you cannot print your own copies to hang up in the school. No money is exchanging hands, I’m not giving you the individual character files, and the copyright info is still on the bottom of the poster. Have fun and enjoy!

    Hello!

    i would LOVE to use these in my tech class, but it appears the file is not available anymore. This is the notice I get when I click on your link. any chance you could email them to me? Thanks!!!
    File not found

    Sorry, that file doesn’t live here anymore. It might have been moved or made private.

  30. Carin says:

    Greetings,
    I’m hoping to use the posters as part of a bulletin board but I can’t get to them either. The dropbox error says it’s been moved or made private. I also tried to right click the link and download, but no luck there either. I tried in Chrome and Firefox. Thanks if you can provide ideas…sounds like it works on your end from your previous comment. Thanks for making these!
