Glogster

It seems like everyday there is a new digital storytelling tool being created and that means that your students have more choices than ever when completing projects and in-class assignments.  Glogster is one of these new online tools where users can create an online multimedia poster about a certain topic.  For example, you might be talking about genetics in class and ask your students to create a "glog" where they include a video, picture, text excerpts from class readings, etc. about the topic.  This gives students the ability to exercise their creative expression and develop their own independent thoughts about the class material...plus it's fun!  They even have an educator account now where you can create an environment for your students to work and play.  Any ideas on how you can use this in your classroom?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.  If you want to see a "glog" in action, check out this poster that I put together for an online course over the summer.
