  2. 2. Navigate your way through the Technology Toolbox! The Home page is like a Table of Contents. Each chapter is linked so that if you click on it, the slideshow will jump directly to that section. The action buttons at the bottom of the screen can also help you move through the Technology Toolbox. Clicking on the left arrow takes you to the previous slide, the home icon takes you back to the first slide to use the table of contents, and the right arrow takes you to the next slide.
  3. 3. What is WMS Technology Toolbox? <ul><li>Just like a handyman’s toolbox, your technology toolbox contains the tools you need to solve problems. </li></ul><ul><li>WMS Technology Toolbox is your place for technology tips and tricks that you can add to help you with integrating technology into instruction. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is a Glog? <ul><li>Glogster is a web2.0 tool that allows you to create interactive posters called Glogs.  They are easy and fun to make.  You can add cool backgrounds, animated graphics, embed audio and video files, and add hyperlinks. </li></ul><ul><li>www.glogster.com/edu </li></ul><ul><li>Above is the link for the educational version of Glogster. It is the same as the original with the ads removed.  </li></ul>
  5. 5. Why Blog When You Can Glog? <ul><li>Glogs are a fun way of making posters on the computer. Glogs could replace an assignment you currently have that involves making a poster, sensory figure, or anything from Microsoft Publisher. Glogs also have a comments feature that can work just like a blog. </li></ul><ul><li>Click here to see a fun video about Glogs vs. posters. It’s like the PC vs. Mac commercials you see on TV. </li></ul><ul><li>Click here to see an example of a Glog on Swine Flu. It is embedded into my Blog – another nice feature of using Glogs. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Handouts for Glogster <ul><li>See the 2 attachments that accompany this PowerPoint: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Glog Cheat Sheet – I used this with students as a reference sheet. </li></ul><ul><li>Glogster Organizer – This is a graphic organizer to help frame your Glog. </li></ul>
