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.
