I decided that I will move ahead with the school-based Glogster this week with my students as we finish up Three Cups of Tea. I’m excited about it and I think the students are going to love the experience. One of my reservations about messaging among students is not an issue (thanks, Gail) as Glogster has shut down that option for students to message anyone other than their teacher. I also imagine the most difficult thing will be getting all the students logged in with their Glogster-created user names and passwords, but I created a spreadsheet with all that information and have printed out slips of paper for them to use.
Here the assignment they will be getting for homework that will form the basis of the Glog they will create. The book review will actually be done in the form of a podcast (I hope):
I also worked up a rubric to help keep them focused on the work, adding in an important design element to the rubric.
Peace (on the journey),
