Course Description

The purpose of this mini-course is to show how the program Glogster can be used in classrooms for interactive presentations. Glogster allows students to create and share interactive posters with eachother and the rest of the world. It has a vareity of uses ranging from education to expression. In this course i will show you how to use glogster to create simple glogs. i will also include a unit that invloves students making a glog and giving a presentation on it. My example could be applied to any educator who has ever had students make a poster/powerpoint to demonstrate and share their knowledge of a topic. Educators can also use Glogster to teach their lessons, it is a fun, intetactive way to present information and couples nicely with new technologies such as smart boards
