Thanks to Free Tech 4 Teachers, I found a wonderful new tool called Glogster. This Web 2.0 tool allows students to make a “poster” with added information. A ‘glog’ is basically an online poster/web page. Students can combine text, pictures, graphics, video, and audio to create an interactive online poster. It has a very simple to use interface. The final glog can be hosted by Glogster or you can embed it into a wiki, blog, or class web site.
This sure would be a much more fun an exciting way of doing a report than simply typing and printing it. There are some great examples of posters on the site. Here are four of the highlighted projects.
