How I Use It
We used the product to brainstorm ideas on helping the environment. Students individually and in small groups listed all their ideas on the Glogster page and then worked to mix their text with graphics to create advocacy posters for the school's environment week display. The students were able to easy move items on the screen and set up their pages. We were able to use the product both in our classroom and lab. While the student learned the content of the subject as they worked through the product, I think the big take away for the students was choosing colours as often their first printout was not readable based on the colours they were using on their posters.
My Take
Both as a learning and teaching tool this is a strong product that is intuitive and accessible on various platforms. I like all the options students have to create and grab preset images and templates to express themselves. As the product is web based it was easy to login and create on the spot brainstorms of what we were planning on working on.
