GLOGSTER making web-posters


A friend of mine, Lívia fernandes, found out about Glogster in Facebook and decided to try it out with a project for mother´s day. She asked students to write a short text about their moms, then she scanned the texts and made a poster with their work. It´s so cute!!!!

Then as I wanted to try it out too, I made a present to e-colleagues of mine from the Learning with Computers community using Glogster.

Carla Arena after hearing about it also put her hands to work and created he own poster to send a message to her students.

Then yesterday, I came across this really cool glog made by photographer Jan von Holleben. It´s enchanting! Loved the photographs!

Besides being visually appealing it is so much fun making the posters! You can add images, videos, audio to preset cool templates.

HOW CAN WE USE IT WITH STUDENTS?
  • You can publish your student´s work.
  • Students can make their own poster on an specific topic.
  • You can send messages to students.
  • USE YOUR IMAGINATION
