Technology Tip: Glogster

A New Way to Create Posters!
Glogster is an interactive poster maker.  You can upload documents and videos into your posters.  You can also create links within the poster.  This is a fantastic way for students to create and share posters about math concepts!!!

Ideas for Using Live Binders with Math Students:

  • Alternative Assessments                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Have students create a Glog at the end of a unit and use it as an Alternative Assessment.  Ex.  Students could create a Glog about Proportions.  You could give them a rubric of things that must be included in the Glog.  For example:  1 example of a proportion, 1 example of how to solve a proportion, the definition of a proportion, a video of them explaining how to solve a proportion, etc.
  • Showing Multiple Representations                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Have students create a Glog to show Multiple Representations of a particular problem.  For example:  Create a Glog showing Multiple Representations of how to solve an equation, or create a Glog showing Multiple Representations of how to add fractions (estimate, draw a picture, work the algorithm, justify your answer).
These are just a few of the ways you can use Glogs with your students.  Look for more ways to use Glogster with your math students on our Love of Learning Blog.
