Save Paper and Assign an Educational Glog!


Are you in a mood to save trees and promote creativity in your students? Check out http://www.glogster.com/edu/. Click register and fill out the information. Open your email and click the verification link. Click "create a new glog" to make your own. But first let me tell you what a glog is. A glog is an online poster that can include graphics, text, images, video and sounds. To start your own glog you will want to add or create a background or wall as they call it. Then add your text, graphics, pictures, videos and sounds. Students can create glogs about things you already have them do in class. Instead of writing what they learned on a piece of paper have them create a glog. You might be pleasantly surprised at what they produce for you. When they are finished with their glog, they can email it to you as a glog gift. And just think; you won’t have any papers to carry home!

I heard a teacher share about using glogster to post things on her wiki. The wiki we created to showcase the magnet program here at Diggs Elementary has a glog on the front page and one on the FAQ page. I have had fun using glogster that last few weeks.

I forgot to add that there is also on on the arts-themed magnet school page at that same wiki listed above.
