My First Glog!

     As I have been perusing all of the great teaching/education sites out there, I ran across Glogster - a site where teachers AND students can make presentations using pictures, videos, sound clips, graphics, and more. I decided to check it out and try the free sample. It's not bad for my first try.  It took a little while to figure everything out, but once I got going it was fun.
     At our school we have to make an all-about-me poster to share with our students at the beginning of the year.  It's always a pain because it needs updated every year.  Glogster is so much easier!  It allows you to pull pictures from your computer or the web - instead of literally cutting and pasting you can drag, drop, and bling it out!  I thought this particular glog would be good to project during Meet the Teacher and the first day of school!  I am considering purchasing  a subscription for my classroom. This would be a great program for students to make their own all-about-me posters and to do reports and presentations.
What do you think?
