Glogster is a new Web 2.0 technology that allows students and teachers to make multimedia posters.
Glogster is an excellent Web 2.0 Technology ties into the NCCA Key Skills as well.
- Glogster encourages students to think critically and creatively as they have to create a multimedia poster but use relevant information.
- They have to process information to make the multimedia poster.
- When making a multimedia poster they have to communicate with their teacher and fellow classmates when making a multimedia poster.
- If the teacher uses Glogster in class, students will have to think what they want to do, how they want to create the poster and how much information they want to put on the poster and can they achieve their plan in the limited amount of time they will have.
