Session Description

Your students have just completed a unit study. Authentic and meaningful learning activities took place where students made real-life connections and engaged in 21st century learning skills. SO NOW WHAT??? NOW... Assess you students knowledge and support their visual literacy skills through a dynamic, interactive classroom experience using GLOGSTER. Glogster introduces students to 3-D communication skills, enabling them to communicate and evaluate information and meaning. With Glogster, your students can express their mood, feelings and ideas through text, audio, video and graphics. In this session, we'll foster your creative mind as you work to create your own Glogster page that will enable you to express who you are! We'll share our glogs and get to know a bit more about each other... and what unites us as Keystone Technology Integrators!
