What is Glogster?

With the tagline poster yourself, Glogster EDU transforms traditional posters into glogs. Glogs bring learning alive by seamlessly incorporating multi-media rich elements including: text; images; videos; audio files and custom narration; hyperlinks; and special effects. In addition to the interactive attributes of glogs, students are invited to reveal personal expression in the design and layout used for their glogs. With this type of publishing platform, independent thought is truly fostered as students showcase their learning through an aggregation of artifacts they have collected, researched, created, and/or photographed in a dynamic and innovative way. Finalized glogs are easily shared online and can be embedded into a class webpage for parents and other stakeholders to see.
