How I Use It
My students had research a country for the whole year and we needed something as a final product to show our learning. Glogster was our solution, I had used this tool before with 2nd graders and I need 5th grades would love it and totally make it their own. They created an online poster using Glogster to present the information they had collected.
My Take
Even though this product is more of a presentation tool, you can still use it to differentiate they way your students can present to the class. I love how I have access to all my students accounts and I can help them edit their work and see their progress. This program can make the poster so individualized or so structured, depending on your students. The only bad thing is that sometimes some things failed, like my students wouldn't be able to log in because they had the "incorrect" password even when I was typing it for them. Or how images and text would "fail" when you were trying to edit. I sure hope Glogster fixes all the small bugs they have because I plan on keep using this amazing tool.
