Glogster
EDU is a great way for teachers and students alike to creatively express
knowledge and skills. The platform can be used to design online media posters
for all sorts of presentations – whether teaching a lesson or sharing what
they’ve learned. They can be shared in various formats – on LCD projectors,
interactive whiteboards, and even on websites. They can be worked on at school
and at home. And teachers can even use Glogster to teach “How To Use Glogster”.
If you’re looking for a really cool and easy way to integrate technology into your
classroom, Glogster is a very intuitive way to do it. Instead of the hassle of
building dioramas or tri-fold posters, Glogster allows students create online
posters with pictures, videos, text, GIFs, links, and citations. Glogster gives
any subject a reason to use technology, here are a few innovative ways that you
can use it in your classroom.
Rainforest or ocean dioramas…
I know, dioramas are like very exciting and cool in elementary. But they are also
very labor intensive and require a lot of physical resources and parent help.
Glogster is a way to give diverse learners, or students with less resources
another way to show what they’ve learned while simultaneously integrated
technology.

with another subject, then Glogster becomes an incredibly powerful learning
tool for students.
