How I Use It
I have used Glogster as a multi-media platform for presenting information. The best use this year was for scientific method write ups. The edu templates provide younger students with a place to start. Students are engaged and can use a template to add text, images, video and graphics on a subject matter studied. Students and parents love the final products. Give a student a topic and a template and it is amazing what they can create.
My Take
I love Glogster. I plan on using Glogster in my classroom again next year. When teaching a combo class this year it allowed a group of my students the opportunity to write up and present their learning independently while I instructed another group. They don't have to rely on poster board and glue. They can use multi-media to express themselves. The edu templates are easy to browse and select from. Students love using multi-media visuals in e-learning. I believe the visual glogs they create truly help them retain the information learned.
