How I Use It
I've used Glogster to have students create "posters" about authors, themes of novels, and even in small groups for projects on characterization or research topics. This tool will keep students engaged for hours, provided they are given instruction on what elements should be included in their Glog, and a basic how-to tutorial for a few minutes. Generally, students will get the hang of the tools quickly on their own.
Glogster is a big step into the 21st century for the traditional "poster" assignment. With Glogster, students can not only create a work of art on a topic, they can learn how to cite their work with hyperlinks, and add depth to their projects by incorporating videos, links to other sites, and existing artwork.
