What is Glogster?

What is Glogster?

Dear teachers

Glogster EDU 2.0

  • The innovative characteristic of EDU 2.0 is

    • a shift toeducational social networking in the

    • classroom and beyond.

  • Teachers and students share Glogs; graphic elements, projects, and ideas. They are able to establish groups not only within a classroom or school but also within a state, region, or beyond and thus promote their work with a broad audience of educators and students. At the same time they are protected from inappropriate outside content because teachers securely administer accounts, groups and discussion boards.


Dear teachers

Inside your Virtual Classroom

33% of online teens share their own creations online, such as artwork, photos, stories, or videos.

32% say that they have designed or worked on webpages or blogs for others, including groups to which they belong, friends or school assignments.

Almost one in five internet-using teens (19%) say they remix content that they find online into their own artistic creations.

All of the above figures are increasing - NOW is the time to broadly initiate the interactive program, Glogster.
