What is Glogster?
Glogster is "a unique social network based on the
creation and sharing of Glogs - interactive posters loaded with text,
graphics, music, videos, and more. Glogster’s goal was to provide an
outlet for unlimited creative expression online" (Glogster, 2012).
Glogster seems like it would be a great tool to use in the classroom. Glogster is a unique website that allows students to create a digital poster. The content of the poster would be able to show each student's knowledge about a certain topic in any subject area. The range of topics that Glogster can be used for is unlimited. Students can create posters through Glogster in elementary school, middle school, college, and beyond. Students can use Glogster to give a presentation to a class instead of PowerPoint.
It can also be used as a teaching tool, which would allow a teacher to easily gather videos and pictures in one place to introduce a new topic or introduce vocabulary to the class. Teachers can use Glogster for lessons or lectures.
I love watching students' creativity shine and this platform allows students the opportunity to their imagination and style to create a digital poster. Glogster is a useful and user friendly option for both teachers and students to use.
