The Learning 2.0 School

Shifting Perceptions of Teaching and Learning in and out of the School Library

Glogster

Posted by Michelle Torrise on April 17, 2009

I just finished my first Glogster poster this week. Glogster is a free online multimedia application that allows you to add images, sound, and video in to poster format–which can be accented with borders, text and other shapes and objects. The posters are interactive and can be posted to blogs and social networking sites (as I have done here).

The potential uses in education are many. Neil Stephenson teaches 7th grade Humanities in Canada and has posted the work of one of his students who used Glogster to create a historical timeline.  See his blog, Thinking in Mind.  Stephenson’s student’s work is incredible, even he agrees.
