Glogster is an online social poster-making site that allows users to create interactive digital posters (called “glogs”) with easy-to-use tools and features. Glogster is a social-networking site similar to Facebook or Twitter, but rather than interacting directly, it encourages users to communicate visual through the use of glogs. Users can insert text, images, photos, music, special effects, and videos into their glogs, and then share them with friends. Users can also explore other glogs on the site, following the creators and sharing them with others. The app is relatively easy to use, but features light social aspects and depends on user-created content, which may sometimes contain inappropriate material. Due to these concerns, Glogster is only recommended to users ages 12 and up with parental supervision.


This app is good for kids who need help with:

Planning

Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals. Improving short-term planning.

Like many other projects, creating a glog is a multi-step process, and requires a plan due to the limitless amount of options available. In order to create a Glogster poster, users should first decide on a topic, find relevant information, and then gather pictures, music, and video before creating their glogs. Once all material is gathered, users must decide how best to arrange and place their media to achieve a quality presentation.

Organization

Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task. Organizing ideas.

Glogster gives users a blank slate on which to create the poster which can be very overwhelming. Users need to determine what items are essential to present, and how best to organize them so that the poster conveys and effective understandable message. Users may be tempted to inundate their posters with images and flair, but sometimes a more understated approach can achieve a better result.

Users should also create a dedicated Glogster folder on their computer, which serves a s a place to archive interesting material they come across while browsing the web. This can make it easier to find images and videos when it comes time to start a new glog.

Flexibility

Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Glogster offers a lot of tools to help users create an great-looking presentation. In order to get create great-looking posters, users should experiment with these tools to determine the best ways to use them, preview their posters, and be willing to periodically make any necessary changes to refine the presentation and clarity of their glogs. Users will have to explore new ways to combine and present media in order to ensure their glog stands out from the crowd.
