May 2013: Community Highlights
The Glogster EDU Community is chock-full of amazing EDUcators and creative learners from all over the world. The only thing they’re required to share is a love of knowledge and a passion for learning creatively. Glogster EDU teachers connect and share in a variety of ways: by email, on Facebook, on Edmodo, and on Twitter, just to name a few. Every week, we’re flooded with inspiration from enthusiastic, inspiring and creative teachers. It’s our pleasure to share what we find here. Without further ado: here are some outstanding highlights from this month at Glogster EDU.

Glogster EDU Kudos
Every month, Glogster supports EdCamps and EdConferences with sponsorships, including Glogster EDU licenses for raffles, and other giveaways. And sometimes an EDUcator just wants to let us know we’re loved. Well, you’re all loved too! Here are a few kudos we’ve gotten this month:
We’ve also started a suggestion box: Edu.Suggestions@Glogster.com
Our fans and users ask us all kinds of great questions. Here are just a few from this month:
A: We’re working on a new Item Browser at the moment, and it’s almost ready. When it’s done, we’ll be tackling all sorts of new improvements and features. Thanks to the NextGen Glog Editor, you’ll be seeing more features and more improvements in speed and performance on a consistent basis!
Q: (Via Email) Have you considered adding a “business” or “leadership skills” category (to Glog Categories)? That would apply more to higher ed than to K-12, but it could be useful to people in my field. – Dee Anne Bonebright, Minnesota
A: Great Question! We have been working on a version of Glogster EDU, including a slightly different editor, that would be aimed at the needs of business and higher ed users, like yourself. For now, there are training vocational categories in the Discipline options, but a business/professional category is a great idea. We’ll definitely add this to our future plans.
A. Oh yes we are! And we can tell you this: it looks incredible. We can’t spill all the beans yet, but we can tell you that the app will be touch capable, will allow you to embed photos from an iPhone or iPad, and record audio on the fly. And it will do a whole lot more!
