Apparently with my test run of the Glogster EDU basic, I have also qualified for a month trial of the Glogster EDU premium. With the premium account it allows you to create projects for the students to access. It allows for messaging between one another, which the teacher can view. This is something that I look forward to using with my students. I am not sure how many glogs you can make under each student name, but that will be something I will look into.
I have immensely enjoyed using this web tool to create different lessons. Below I used Glogster for a math activity. In our first quarter curriculum the students are asked to complete a number map for a multiplication problem. Glogster will provide a creative way to do it.
I also used Glogster to make a Social Studies presentation of a selected Maryland geographical region. In the first quarter of fourth grade social studies there is a big focus on the regions and with the video, images, and graphics the students can choose a region and present what they've found to their classmates.
So really Glogster is my new best friend and I cannot wait to check out the computer lab so that I can get my students as excited as I am. I'm kind of afraid to try out this new Premium Glogster EDU because I will probably want to use that more frequently and I just cannot afford:
Maybe a grant....
