Glogging:


In Module I of our Education 530 Graduate course we were to create a "GLOG" depicting the following areas for 21st Century learning; be sure to represent each item:1) core subjects and 21st century themes2) three necessary skills for learning and innovation3) ICT literacy as part of the information, media, and technology skills4) five life and career skills

I found creating and viewing a Glog to be an inviting technological way to include my students in learning, planning, and experiencing Music class like never before. According to Glogster.com, using a Glog provides to teachers and students:

  1. A fun learning experience

  2. A new way to express creativity

  3. Private, secure, safe virtual classroom monitored by teachers

  4. Drives new interest levels around subjects that may have been seen as “boring” before

  5. Adds audiovisual aspects to traditionally text-oriented subjects

  6. Fosters teamwork and collaboration with classmates

  7. Increases drive to be independently creative

  8. Unlimited shelf life

  9. Improves student-teacher relationships by allowing both to explore Web 2.0 & learning concepts together

  10. Keeps teachers and students up-to-date with modern technology

Below you will find my Glog I created for Module I
