Go Sideways with Glogster EDU – Announcing the horizontal Glog®!

Teacher-blackboard-horizontFlip Your Classroom, and your Glogs! 

Yes, in a month of exciting announcements, including our Faculty Edition, and the introduction of many all-new features, it is no less of a pleasure to announce the arrival of the Horizontal Glog. You asked and we answered: the Horizontal Glog has been a popular request from our users, and we’ve worked hard to make sure it would blend seamlessly with all the great tools available to our Glogster EDU Premium users.

Ancient Egypt - Horizontal Glog - TEMPLATE

The Horizontal Glog, as well as all templates and examples from Glogpedia, will be available to ALL USERS for a limited time only. It will remain available in the future as a Premium feature of all of Glogster EDU’s Premium Editions, but not to free users.

Some Neat Ideas for Horizontal Glogs

We’ve only just begun to think of unique ways the Horizontal Glog can be used for teaching and learning. Here are just a few of our initial ideas:

Make a Timeline or a Graph

The shape of the Horizontal Glog lends itself perfectly to timelines and graphs. The really special thing about a Glogster EDU timeline or graph is the ability to embed images, graphics and video to highlight events on a timeline, or information connected with different data points. Create an animated graph that shows the important points with moving arrows and other animations- the possibilities are endless!

Create a Brochure or Storybook Using Presentations

By combining the layout of the Horizontal Glog with the power of a Glogster EDU presentation, you can easily design a brochure or storybook about a student project, a field trip, or any other subject. Make a Glog Presentation about the classroom rules, for example, or print it out and place it somewhere in the classroom.

Publish a Horizontal Glog With Glogster EDU!

Glogster EDU’s Horizontal Glogs are fully embeddable in Wikispaces, and other websites. Share presentations of your Horizontal Glogs on your Classroom Blog, or school website, to show off work to parents, or make your lessons easily accessible from anywhere. Go anywhere with Glogster EDU!

  2. Our students and teachers love Glogster and all its super easy to use features. I use it with 4th & 5th graders and they have created some excellent glogs. They will enjoy this horizontal feature.

    In a current Glog project we wanted the students to be able to add video. However through the youtube link feature there is so much inappropriate content that we can’t allow our students to use it. Could you consider allowing emded links to Teachertube, Khan Academy, and other sites that are exclusively educational content? We would love this!

  3. Great question Sara. In fact this is precisely something that we are working on right now, and would like to have ready to go as soon as possible. Very soon, you will be able to select specific YouTube channels (including your own) and add them to a Glog editor for easy browsing of approved content.
