Tips for Effective Glogsters from Mrs. Fleet


Try this cool new Web 2.0 tool to create a more exciting product for presenting the results of your research! Click here to access Glogster! Here’s all you do:

  • Collect and organize your research information

  • Login to Glogster

  • Choose a wall or background for your glog–don’t make it too “busy” or it will detract from your poster

  • Select text boxes and type your research information into several text boxes, dividing it into categories according to the topics you are researching

  • Select graphics from Glogster or import your own images from your own pictures or from Creative Commons  or Flickr Creative Commons to illustrate your topic. You can also try Google Images, but some pictures may be covered by copyright.

  • Add sound or video if you are brave!

Here are some good glogs to look at:
