Activity: Participate in this Wallwisher Discussion!

Follow-up: Now that you've tried this tool, how do you think you might use Wallwisher for your classes?


For more ideas on using Wallwisher, try these resources:


Resources on how to get started with Wallwisher:

Gliffy is a diagram-creation website. Not only does this tool make it SUPER-easy to create a diagram (this can include images, using Gliffy's handy internal image database, as well!), it also provides the capability to have multiple users collaborate on a project. Click here to go to a more detailed Gliffy information page -- includes instructions, examples, and video tutorials!


Here's a handy Gliffy reference sheet to get you started.



Using Glogster is a bit like creating an electronic scrapbook page.  Glogster provides the "fun" elements (titles, images, speech bubbles, backgrounds) and YOU provide the content (text, images, video, audio) to create an online poster.





  • If you would prefer, just tell each of your students to create his/her own Glogster account, and to send you the link (or have all of the students post their links to the discussion area in Blackboard) to the completed project.


Here is a wonderful resource handout on Glogster EDU from Karen Ogen, Technology Integration Specialist in Columbia, SC. She also has quite a few blog entries on using Glogster, like this one.



Once your Glog is completed, you can share it multiple ways:







FINAL ACTIVITY: Take a few minutes to explore some of the latest Glogs at the Glogster EDU site. Now that you've seen some completed projects, how do you envision using Glogster for your own classes?


Here is a Glogster grading rubric we found that might come in handy if you decide to have students create glogs for your classes. This rubric is floating around the internet in slightly different variations, so I'm afraid I don't know to whom I should attribute the original -- whoever you are, thank you!


While imperfect, it's a very good jumping off point. If I had to recommend any changes, it would be to add something more about the content. If you look at this Glog on the Factors of Production (an Economics topic, so near and dear to my heart), you will see that this individual puts "Cattle" in the category of "Capital." Capital is machinery & equipment; land is any natural resource . . . I point this out because there does not appear to be anything in the rubric about such a glaring misunderstanding of a fundamental concept. Conceivably, using this rubric, this student could get a good grade without actually understanding the material!
