Famous American Glogs

Mrs. Bralley’s Third Grade Reading Classes have been learning about Famous People. They’ve read stories, explored interactive iPad apps, researched, made story cubes, and even created their own Glogs on Glogster EDU.

They are very proud of their work. Check out a few of Glogster posters below or check them all out in the class Glog Book.

Famous People Glogs

Mrs. McGee’s class has been working hard on Glog using Glogster EDU to demonstrate their understanding of the famous people they have studied.  After a quick tutorial on how to use the programs, Mrs. McGee and her students were off and running.  Here are a few examples of their hard work.  Click on the top right corner icon to see them full size.

Glogging About Authors

Fourth Graders in Mrs. Corbett’s class created interactive posters about famous authors!  They used a service called Glogster Edu to create these posters!  Here are a few examples of their work.  You can see them all on the class wiki .

It’s amazing how engaged the kids were while working in Glogster!  Here is a video shot from the work session.

Teachers Using Glogster

Have you seen the Nicoles’ new Carver library webpage?  Or Victoria Salvat’s Kindergarten page?  If not, check them out!  You will notice they are using a really cool service called Glogster.  Glogster allows you to make interactive poster-like creatives that include links, pictures, and videos all with a really slick looking design.  You can allow these posters to stand alone as wepbages, or embed them in webpage, wiki, or blog.  It works especially well for the homepage of a website.  This is what Victoria and Nicole did to add that extra touch to their websites.  Pam and I also used this for the Trek2India wiki!

So, want to make interactive posters with your kids?  Here’s a tutorial that shows you how!

Always remember to stay on the educational gloster site (http://www.glogster.com/edu) with your students. Otherwise, they may access inappropriate material on the regular Glogster site.
