I first found Glogster several years ago. When I first signed up for Glogster, the free basic teacher account was a lot more powerful. You could create a class and add students to the class. You could then access your students Glogs. They have since changed the free basic teacher account so that it is just that, an account. You don't have the ability with this level of account to have classes and add students to your classes. But you and your students can have free accounts. In order to see your students Glogs, they will have to share the URL of the Glog with you.
I used Glogster in a couple of different classes. In IT Fundamentals, I had students do a project on a famous computer person. Instead of having students write a report or do a presentation on the person, I had students make a Glog. They were still giving me the same information I would have wanted in a report or presentation, but Glogster allowed them I think to be more creative and make the project interactive. They could include links to websites and YouTube videos in Glog. While they could include a link in a report, I would have had to go to the computer and enter the link in order to see the site. With Glogster, I just clicked on it. Here is an example I did on Grace Hopper.
In my IT Apps 2 class, I had the students make a portfolio of their work. Throughout this class students did several Photoshop projects. Their portfolio Glog included all of their projects along with an explanation of the project. Here is a sample.
I love Glogster and the possibilities it gives students to show their creativity. I would love to see more teachers give students options to showcase their learning. I think Glogster would be a great option.
