How I Use It
In addition to having students use for reports, presentations, science fair, etc...I also use a library glog as my library resource portal. Student computers at school have Sanislo Glog as the default for internet explorer, and links to grade specific resource glogs cascade from a consistent easy to use home page. Families also love being to bookmark and use the library glog as "one stop" source for supportive websites and resources...and it makes supervision of limited-exploration online a snap.
My Take
Class assignments get a big boost when adding Glogster's visual and web-linked interactivity. Lessons can be communicated in a few minutes then turn students loose to collect and present learning in their own glog. Easily shared, and...starting next month Glogster will have live collaborative capacity for group projects in real time. BRAVO!
