Glogster audio

  1. 1. Glogster: An Epic Summary By David Ingraham
  2. 2. What is Glogster? <ul><li>Glogster is a web 2.0 application that allows users to create posters on-line that others can comment on. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What’s so great about posters? <ul><li>Glogster posters are not your ordinary posters. Music, narratives, animations can all be added to enhance the content of what would typically be thought of as solely a visual medium. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Pleasant surprises await! <ul><li>Glogster is an incredibly user friendly sight. All the tools are available and obvious on every screen. Help menus and tutorials are in plain view. </li></ul><ul><li>Get to the website and it will do all the work teaching you how to use it. </li></ul><ul><li>The tutorial is one minute long and takes you through all the steps necessary to work the sight. </li></ul>
  5. 5. More surprises await! <ul><li>Glogster has pop-ups as you complete each step of the process that help direct you to the next thing that you need to do. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Glogster screen with tool choices and help pop ups
  7. 7. Opportunities <ul><li>Glogster has many applications in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>English: Can be used for students to add graphics and sound to interpret the mood or meaning of a poem. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Sample Poem Glog with embedded video
  9. 9. <ul><li>Any subject could create a Glog that shows a process, whether scientific or mathematical or how to bake a cake. </li></ul>The Joy of this website is its simplicity. -No sign up is required to complete a Glog, so students without an e-mail address can still create one. If you do sign up all it requires is an e-mail address and a password. -Glogs can be tagged by content to be easily searched.
  10. 10. What to do… <ul><li>Another great thing about this sight is the way it literally holds your hand every step of the way. </li></ul><ul><li>My largest problem was that I was having so much fun I was having trouble focusing on my goal. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Cautions <ul><li>There are over a thousand choices for graphics alone, students can spend a long time selecting options. </li></ul><ul><li>Some content and locations should be monitored as I did come across a gang related Glog. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Resources <ul><li>Glogster http://www.glogster.com </li></ul><ul><li>Jing http://www.jingproject.com </li></ul><ul><li>Slideshare http://www.slideshare.net </li></ul><ul><li>Explore all the options (there are a lot!) </li></ul>
