Glogster is an amazing Web 2.0 site that allows students to make virtual posters with embedded text, photos, sounds/music, and video. Students can create their virtual poster, visualizing a concept or idea and, by extension, can film themselves with their webcam to discuss rationale for inclusion of placement and elements in digital presentation. Further, as a “Glog” also incorporate elements of a “Blog”, students can comment to each other and their posters offering suggestions, ideas, and feedback. In this way, students can be collaborative, cooperative, and supportive in such a way as to improve the learning of themselves and each other. The embedded video component, allowing students to add personality to their already dynamic presentation, affords an opportunity for self reflection – assessment “as” learning.

PS: The Educator version allows the teacher to make accounts for students thus making it safe and secure for younger students.
