My First Ever Glogster



At last I have made my first Glog! I spent last night watching Russell Stannard's very informative and thorough Glogster tutorial. My Life in Abruzzo is a very basic Glog to begin with, but it was a lot of fun to create and the possibilities are endless. To view it in full size, click on the Glogster link on the top right hand side of the poster..

I wonder what took me so long to try Glogsters out? Next time, I would like to embed more links such as text, videos and audio to take maximum advantage of their interactivity. These posters have got many applications for educational purposes. You can find links and examples of some fabulous Glogsters below. It'll be quite a while before I get to their very high standards!! They will definitely be my inspiration to be more creative.

Hello Janet,
Great glog showing a beautiful place to live!
Are you aware of Glogster EDU where you can administer student accounts and get Premium features? Look at these glogs created by students and teachers for more ideas. http://www.diigo.com/list/glogstereduman/

Hi Karen

Thank you for popping by and for your very kind comment about my Glog.

Yes, I have seen examples of Glogster EDU and I agree it would be a great place to create student accounts. I will bear that in mind for the future.

Thank you very much for your helpful link and for offering to help if I have any questions. Will do!

How should you say it "blogster" as in blog or

'bloegster" as in poster?

I like the sound of "blogster".

I'll have to call my second one that in the future!
