MakeBadges: Graphics Creator

My intern and I are making an infographic for the STEM Certificate Program. During our research we found a bunch of great graphic resources.

One resource I found very easy to use and well designed was MakeBadges. It is a web-based tool for creating graphic badges, avatars, and banners. There are all sorts of classroom applications with this tool. Kids could create a badge for a mock company, store, or enterprise; they could make avatars for a group project. Teacher could create badges for their kids when they accomplish a given task. And the banner creator is a nice tool for sprucing up your worksheets or slide decks.
