What you can use glogster for, in the classroom.

There are many different kinds of blogs that you can make, or rather have your students make if you are a teacher and are using edu.glogster.

You can make a glog to represent who you are, use pictures, words, descriptions and the such to visually represent who you are to another person. This would be a great introduction activity for students to introduce themselves in a new class.

You can also make instructional glogs if you want to teach something, using pictures, steps, tutorial or supporting videos and the such. Instructional glogs would be a great new way to present information to students, as an introduction to the material or as a review of the material. You can even have students make them as a review of the material, it would be a great way to reinforce the material for them, finding supportive pictures and videos.

What glogs would seem most useful for, though, is a visual presentation tool for the students to present certain material, perhaps as something to do in a project, group or individual. You can even have the students make a commercial glog in order to sell something, which is a great activity for many content areas.
