Get Glogging! Go on, Poster Yourself!

Students in the Play, Fantasy and Reality course use Glogster to keep a 15-week reflective journal.  In week 15, the final week of the course, they re-read their Glog Journal and create a second Glog to describe their “play” throughout their life.  Glogging is a new way to create posters on the web – it’s fun, and free for students.

Glogging allows the expression of opinions, feelings and ideas in a way that isn’t possible with the use of mere words. Students can add background images and themes, graphical representations, photos, titles, audio, links and videos.  After a Glog is created, students publish and share theirs with classmates.

UPDATE: Glogster was removed from the course because the company began charging for use. In addition, the application is not ADA compliant.
