How I Use It
This is great for biography posters. We have used it for featured author posters. I also have used it with an Abolitionist poster unit in U.S. history. We especially love how it engages students and makes them really want to work on finding information about the topic to put on the poster.
My Take
Glogster allows students to go beyond the standard poster and add links, audio as well as pictures and graphics to an online poster that their audience can click on and explore.
