Despair, Inc is a fun tool for anyone. It is a website that allows anyone to produce posters in the format of the motivational posters. It is a parody motivator generator. They are known for their cynical and ironic “demotivator” items and have the option to purchase your own creations.
- a fun and engaging tool
- quick and easy to use
- users could potentially get carried away with it
I think this is a great way to engage students. It is fun and easy. But why stop there? I can see this being used to check understanding. For example, students could be asked to create a poster on Despair, Inc to showcase a central theme and then add a quote underneath it that depicts that theme.
