The Media Specialist Committee The committee is aware that school filters prevents us from using Glogster an online poster making presentation tool at school. Mrs. Neville and I both teachers at Carver Middle school wanted to write to you to share with you how this tool would benefit both students and teachers. We chose to use Glogster to present our request and demonstrate how this tool would ensure engaged learning but at the same time, keep our children safe, which we realize is your main goal.
The National Educational Technology Standards for Students expect students to interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments and media. We believe that Glogter is one such tool that would allow for sharing and collaborating. It puts the power of learning and ability to create in the hands of our students
Gail Lovely, an education technology consultant and speaker at the FETC (Florida Educational Technology Conference 2009, developed a top 10 list of go-to technology tools to help inspire young students and empower under-funded teachers. Glogster features in that top ten tools to infuse enthusiasm in leaning.
We realize that student’s safety is a high priority for the committee. We want to assure the committee that Glogster which has a education sector that allow teachers to register and enroll students. Teachers have complete control over any student accounts. Students are linked to the teachers account. The following video hopefully will clear any concerns you make have with regards to student’s safety.
