Using Glogster

Recently, I had a couple of teachers from the Muscatine High School approach me about using Glogster. I was not familiar with Glogster at the current time. I found the site and did some quick research on how it worked. The sites allows teacher/students to create a interactive online poster presentation. The templates are set up like a poster and the viewer moves throughout the poster by focusing on different sections within the template. It's a creative way to show case student learning. As an instructor I found it was very easily accessed by students and teachers. This is how it works,  a teacher logs in and sets up a class and the sites provides 125 free student accounts (the directions are very easy to follow).  You just enter the number of accounts you would like to use, the site then sends you an email with codes for each account. You share the code with your students, they use it to log in and then the students are populated to the teachers class. Students then may choose from hundreds of templates to create their online poster presentation. The poster presentations allows the end user to insert text, images, and video. The result is a creative interactive online presentation that may be shared publicly or within Glogster. If you are looking for a fun and exciting way for your students to present their learning, feel free to check out this site.
