How I Use It
I have used this product in my teaching for over 4 years. Our district buys a site license for my use. It is valuable because students who have varying learning abilities can produce an interactive poster which is impressive. I have had students present in front of the entire class using Glogster in order to teach others. It has gone much smoother than other presentations! After using it in my class, students found that it is a program which is easily adaptable to other subjects.
My Take
As a teaching tool, Glogster EDU is a valuable part of any teacher's repertoire of engaging students. Once you set up the accounts, students are able to create visually stimulating, interactive posters showcasing their understanding of a subject / topic. It has an easy format for set up - and then students are able to post a poster that exhibits sound, text, movies, or hyperlinks. Students have used it to learn new concepts or for review. Once students learned it in my class, they found how easy it was to create something pretty remarkable. Students who are shy or introverted found presentations to be easy and fun because of Glogster.
