Glogster is a tool that allows users to create posters to express information. They are multi-media posters that can include text, images, and video. Students will also love to create their own glogs! Instead of printing our pictures and messing with scissors and glue, images and video can be added right to their glogs. They can express an event in history, a science concept, characters in a story, or math concepts.Educators who use Glogster EDU have access to a wide range of creative resources, differentiated instructional activities, assessment opportunities, and so much more.
