West Hartford Public Schools has a recent subscription to Glogster EDU. So what is Glogster you ask?
A Glog is an interactive visual platform in which users create a “poster or web page” containing multimedia elements including: text, audio, video, images, graphics, drawings, and data. Take a look at some uses for Glogs in the classroom.
