How I Use It
"For the price of the product, it’s important to experiment with Glogster in various areas of the curriculum. Some project ideas to consider: -biography projects in language arts -part of the Flipped Classroom model in math (students can embed demonstrations or teachers can group video content under one standard) -record the process of an experiment in science -create a living timeline in social studies -use as a curation tool for research in a variety of classes"
My Take
What is it about an online digital poster that is far more engaging to some students than photocopies and glue? Perhaps it’s the fact that students can insert video and pictures of themselves directly onto a digital poster with a few clicks. Or maybe it is the seemingly endless supply of backgrounds to choose from. Glogster EDU has gone through a recent renaissance, making it cleaner to view and the tools easier to find. The price remains pricey, but you get a high-quality, dependable tool that students can return to again and again. Customer support is top-rate and can be contacted via phone or email. Also included in the price is a secure environment in which your students can create. Gone are the days of uploading class lists in .csv form. Students simple type in an educator or school code from the Glogster home page to quickly be connected to their teacher and classmates. On the teacher side of Glogster, the management settings help effectively keep an appropriate amount of control over the creative process. Teachers can view glogs via the gallery, manage users and passwords and comment all from one place.
