Interactive Posters using Glogster

What is a Glog?

  • Interactive poster loaded with text, graphics, music, videos, and more.
  • Glogster is FREE.
  • Glogs are are easy to make, and offer a unique social-media platform for creative expression.
  • Glogs also offer a unique opportunity to teach about copyright and Creative Commons use licenses, since they are largely created using material available on the internet (photos, videos, images, links, etc).
  • Glogs are used heavily by educators and students, and Glogster also has an EDU platform for academic use.
  • Create an account at:  http://www.glogster.com/

  • Use glogs to advertize programs with pictures of other activities, quotes from participants, etc.  Embed in the webpage and link on Facebook, etc.
