How I Use It
I have used Glogster in several different ways: 1) I used Glogster to present information to a class in a whole group setting, more as teaching and review tool 2) Students used Glogster to gather information in one place and present to each other 3) Students used Glogster to jigsaw knowledge gain from other students (and as a notetaker) Students: Inquire and collect information for themselves, Learn from each other, summarize, listen, visualize, create, write, and more. Teacher can easily evaluate and check for understanding.
My Take
I really like Glogster. It can be used various ways in the classroom. Students and teachers can be creative as they build their posters. It takes some time to get students started but is overall user friendly.
