Glogster EDU is a collaborative online learning  tool for teachers and students.  It is a tools that allows the user to express creativity, knowledge, ideas and skills in the classroom.  Think of Glogster as a tool that allows users to create a "Glog" or an online rich media poster.  It is tool that will keep students in a private and safe student environment.  It also allows you as a teacher to view all students in a class. What I like about Glogster is that it allows students to be exposed to technology skills and operations that cover a wide range of media.  This includes: working with text, images, video, draw tools, and audio.  It is media rich and when aligned with classroom content, highly motivating.
