Remember the days of presenting with poster board. Wait, are you still using poster boards? Limit the amount of paper you are wasting by having your students attempt to make a Glog with Glogster.
A glog is similar to a blog; insofar as, providing content in a hypermedia-interactive media linked through various sources of information. However, a glog is much more image-based. So, visual learners would benefit from using this web tool. I have had two students construct glogs as for classroom projects. The links to the projects are below.
To be a Geek or to be a Nerd? That is an interesting question. Which is a more noble cause? I really liked this info-graphic, and I liked the comparison of these similar, yet surprisingly different, lifelong learners.
I know it isn’t a Glogster, but it is an attractive informational image. However, it isn’t interactive like a Glogster. How can content-rich-info-graphics be used within the classroom? Think of a project to capitalize on this instructional medium. Challenge students to create graphics online with worthwhile information. Make it cool to be a geek/nerd. Make it cool to learn.
