Digital Posters

Develop

Higher
Order Thinking Skills
A
Glog
is a
digital poster
that may contain text, images, videos, backgrounds, audio files and hyperlink
s
. All of these items can be
arranged in a
creative
and
artistic
way.
Glogster
introduces students
to
3-D communication skills
,
enabling them to communicate
and
evaluate information.
Assess
your students knowledge and
support
their
visual literacy skills
By
limiting the space
allocated
for content the presenter
must
provide
meaning and depth to
his or her presentation by offering
explanations
and
descriptions
.
A
Glog
is a
one page
digital
poster. All of the content for your
presentation
must be contained
in one
page. It is composed of primarily
images
and short text labels
.
The
presenter
must
have a clear
understanding of
the topic and be
able to
offer explanations
in
his or her
own words
to
explain content selections.
Engaged Students-
Authentic
Tasks
GlogserEDU
allows teachers
to
setup a virtual classroom. A teacher
can
create and manage accounts
for
each student.
By providing students with a
presentation tool that steers them
toward
reflective analysis
, verbal
explanations,
public speaking
, and
creativity
we are preparing
them for the 21st century
The
finished

Glogs
can be

viewed
online
,
emailed
or embedded in a
wiki
,
website, or blog.

"Do not train a child
to learn by force
or harshness; but
direct them
to it by
what
amuses their minds,
so that they
may be better able
to discover with
accuracy
the
genius
of each"
Plato
With
Glogster
,
your students can
express
their feelings and ideas through
text,
audio,
video
and
graphics.

Today

you
will work to
create
your own Glogster page that will enable you to express who you are!
Avoiding Death
by PowerPoint
How
painful
is it to sit through a presentation in which the presenter
has
slide after slide
of text that he or she continues to
read word for word?
This is
not
an exercise
in
higher order thinking
.
Students are
not synthesizing
the information
they have uncovered.
They are
just reading information
that
they
found on the web.
