Creativity + Convenience = Glogster

Written by 17 August 2010

Welcome to another installment of SimpleK12's 2 Minute EdTech Talk.  We’re asking educators of all grade levels and subjects to share their experiences using EdTech.

The goal? To share, to collaborate, and most of all – to help and encourage teachers to try new forms of technology in their own classrooms.

Last week, Eric Sheninger explained why Social Media is important for school administrations.

This episode of 2 Minute EdTech Talk is with instructional technology teacher Shannon Wentworth.

Watch below to see what she has to say.

Do any of you have any student work on Glogster that you could share? I would love to see it (and I'm sure others would as well!).

    I have some glogs that I would like to share. One question…I did not see the discussion tab on the discussion glog about the house.

    Kimberly Reply:

    I believe for privacy reasons (for the students) – the glogs are all private, meaning you can’t see the discussion tab. Please feel free to put links up to your student work – I would love to see it!

    First off, thanks to Kimberly and Shannon for putting this together. Check out http://edu.glogster.com/glogpedia/ to see some of our favorite glogs, including class projects.

    I just loved the idea of not having to use magazines, glue, and all that go with when you ask students to do a project.

    Technology is a strong tool to engage students.

    I am so glad you two put this wonder together and made it available for everyone.

    Thank you,

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you are using? I’m having some minor security issues with my latest website and I would like to find something more secure. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

    My students use glogs to display algebra instructional videos that they have created.They also use them to display their linear art projects.
    You can find links to some of their examples on my class site as well.

    Love Glogster! however, they started charging for its use this year. So you can only use it for individual use unless you pay. This is difficult in these economic times and with extensive state budget cuts. Just sad because our school loved this tool! Since we have over 700 students it is a bit hard to buy separate accounts for each teacher :( Just thought I would let you know. Love all of your tips and webinars!

    Hi Michelle-
    The same thing happend to us as well! :( Here is a link to a STI project from one of my health ed. students. http://sfr3kdf.edu.glogster.com/false/

    I was also disappointed when they had to start charging. I understand why they would -economically, it is not sound for them to provide the free service to all schools, but it’s not something I personally or my campus can afford.
