How I Use It
I'm currently building a project right now where the students will be creating a Glogster. I've even seen other teachers on campus use it. One of the greatest things about this is that its all digital and I won't have 200 posters to go through and grade. I'll have everything in one location and it'll be simple to go through and look at. It saves on resources, but it also helps students become better 21st Century learners. It provides skills for students to use in a digital age.
My Take
Glogster is a useful tool when you're asking students to create something (a poster, presentation, etc.) Glogster is an online presentation website that allows students to basically create an interactive online poster. Students are able to put in pictures, video, links to websites and text. Glogster provides a ton of free backgrounds, icons, images, text boxes, fonts and colors for the students to use and manipulate. This tool is great in motivating students to get creative and share their understanding of a topic or skill.
