As an Instructional Technology Integrator and GlogsterEDU Ambassador, it shouldn’t surprise me when I encounter Glogster mentioned in an article, journal, course, etc., but sometimes it simply does..!
Just recently, our middle school librarian shared an article with me that talked about a professional development model she thought might work for a PLC that we have going in our district.
As I was reading “Risks, Rewards and Responsibilities of Using New Literacies in Middle Grades”, by Margaret C Hagood, from Voices from the Middle, (a journal by the National Council of Teachers of English), I was pleasantly surprised (proud, actually!) to see GlogsterEDU mentioned as one of the tools suggested to support “teaching with technology” and the “new literacies.”
In fact, it was suggested as a powerful tool in support of Multimodial Literacy.
Multimodal literacy, a 21st Century Literacy skill, is defined on the ReadWriteThink website, which ALSO happens to mention GlogsterEDU with an entire Strategy Guide section devoted to this amazing tool!
