Limitation Of The Free Product Has Begun

As of this week we are officially starting the limitation of our free product. The process began yesterday with closing our free social networking site Glogster.com for new registrations to avoid Glogster.com being misused and confused with Glogster EDU and will continue with further steps in order to update the free version of Glogster EDU so it meets current SaaS standards, leaves less room for unlawful use of our services and therefore makes for a better user experience for our paying customers.

The above mentioned steps will be announced as we move forward.

To discuss a Glogster EDU solution for your district or school please contact us at: +1-888-702-4106

Glogster.com Closes For New Registrations

Beginning today, Glogster.com – our free social networking website that serves as an online platform for creative teenage bloggers will no longer be open for new registrations. The website has declined and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into developing Glogster EDU as it is our main site. Existing Glogster.com users will continue to be able to use the service until it will retire completely.

These changes do not affect Glogster EDU (edu.glogster.com) as it is a separate site.

If you would like to start using Glogster, please go to: edu.glogster.com

Updating Glogster’s Terms of Use

Our new Terms of Use are effective as of April 25, 2014.

We believe it’s essential for you to feel informed when it comes to your information on Glogster. With this in mind, we added a section about Fair Usage and Abuse of Lawful Use of Trial License to our FAQ‘s and Terms of Use.

The inclusion of this section is a response to a massive increase in circumvention of purpose and meaning of use of the Trial license we have identified recently. The usage of our services is being abused by some entities to such an extent that exceeds the normal order of frequency of use and therefore is unlawful, commits long-term law infringements and causes damage to other users of Glogster.  

We feel it is to benefit to everyone to inform and help to raise awareness about lawful using of services.

Updates to our FAQ’s

Fair Usage and Abuse of Lawful Use of Trial License 

Any individual user (natural person) is limited to one trial activation in any 12 month period regardless of a different account username being used or not.

Any organization (group or association of individuals who are joined together either formally or legally e.g. school, company, college, organization, club) are limited to a maximum of 30 Trial registrations in any 12 month period.

Updates to our Terms of Use:

Abuse of Rights and Violation of Lawful Use

Abuse of rights is defined as a willful attempt to exercise the rights of a user of Glogster,  which violates without lawful reason the rights and legitimate interests of other users of Glogster.

As such an exercise of abuse of rights is considered to be, but not limited to:
1.  Repeated activation of a Trial membership by a natural person with in a twelve consecutive month period. Utilizing different aliases is not considered to mean a different natural person that uses electronic services.

2.  Repeated activation of Trial membership over 30 times with in a twelve consective month period without consent and/or unbeknownst to Glogster by a person that differs to a natural person or by an user that differs to a natural person without legal personality. To determine the count of such activations Glogster uses identification principles as domain, used domain name, IP address or other relevant criteria.

For the purposes of legal actions against an entity that uses Glogster in violation of its lawful use each user gives the explicit consent to the use of the identification principles as an evidence.

As repeated activation of the Trial membership is not considered an activation that relates to announced substantial changes in the nature of provided Glogster service and such activation occurs within 30 days after such change is announced.

These changes will take effect on April 25, 2014. See what the new Terms of Use will look like here: Terms of Use

 

The $1000 Glog Contest is Growing Fast!

Hundreds of Teachers Have Entered To Win $1000 Before December 15th! 

It’s been a wild ride at Glogster for the past week. Since we launched our $1000 Glog Contest, we’ve had nearly a thousand submissions from Glogster EDU Teachers all over the world!

How Can I Enter? 

To enter, all you need to do is to TAG your Glogs with this tag: GlogContest2013. Here is a Glog that explains how: 

How_To_Tag_GlogNote: This Contest can be entered by Teachers Only. But Student Glogs still count if submitted by a teacher!

How Can I Win??

When the contests ends on December 15th, 2013 at Midnight EDT, the Contest Commission, a group of Glogster EDU experts including teachers, designers, and Glogster EDU developers will judge the Top 50 submitted Glogs, as chosen by Glogster EDU.

Here are a few tips for entering to WIN:

  • Choose a fascinating new topic to explore: something you think everyone should know about.

The best Glogs tell you something you don’t already know, in a way you weren’t expecting. The winning Glog will be one that tells a story using multimedia and textual information, as well as external links, to tell a complete story. It should reward the reader with rich information and context.

  • Complete your Glog with Multimedia, external links, videos animations, and other goodies. 

Glogter EDU’s magic is its ability to be more than just a Blog platform or a video platform. Glogster EDU allows you to mesh video, animation, links, recordings of your own, and other elements in surprising new ways. Take advantage of these abilities to make your Glog shine.

  • Look at Glogs in Glogpedia for inspiration on good design, clear presentation of information, and good use of colors and contrasts. 

Go beyond Templates to create something unique, while still using what templates offer you in terms of good tips for design. Your Glog doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s! It doesn’t have to use all of the same backgrounds and styles that are common on Glogster EDU: it can be whatever you want it to be. Your message and your concept can be complex, or they can be simple, but the winning Glog will have a design that strengthens its appeal, and lends weight to its messages and information.

When Does the Contest End? 

Check the contest page for full terms and conditions, as well as a set of rules. The contest will end at midnight EST, December 15th, 2013, so get Glogging! The more Glogs you enter, the more chances YOU have to win.

School Administrators: Time to Switch to the NEW Admin Dashboard!

It’s Time to Make the Switch!

As some school administrators may have noticed in the past few months, we’ve been making the new Administrator Dashboard and Tools available to School licenses as a new option. As the new Admin tools are perfected, it’s almost time to make the switch for those Administrators still using the original Glogster EDU Admin Dashboard.

ManualSwitch

Why the Switch? 

In response to the needs of our users, we have developed a new set of Administrator Tools that make handling the large volumes of students and teachers in School Licenses easier, faster, more efficient, and more reliable. While our original Admin Dashboard was based upon the Teacher Dashboard, many of our school administrators found that it fit the needs of a teacher better than those of a school administrator. Even in the cases where a teacher also administrates a School License, the new Admin Dashboard differentiates the work of an administrator and that of a teacher, so that the user will now see a clear difference between acting as an Admin, and as a normal Teacher.

Benefits of the New Admin Dashboard:

A Beautiful, Clean and Clear Design: The new Admin Dashboard is based on a design toolkit called “Bootstrap,” which was developed by Twitter. The new tools look, feel, and work the way you expect them to work, because they follow a common set of rules, shared with leading online services. 

InitialView

Access all Admin functionalities in an intuitive, beautiful Dashboard design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More, and More Powerful, Teacher and Student Management Tools: The New Dashboard not only looks more modern, it has more advanced tools for managing larger numbers of students. These tools include a brand new Student Creation Tool, Mass Actions, and searchable databases of students and teachers. 

Add Teacher

Add or invite Teachers easily

Perform mass actions on students, and access any student account at any time.

Perform mass actions on students, and access any student account at any time.

 

It’s all There in the Manual: For your convenience, a tour function on both the Teacher and Student tools will walk you through all the new functionalities of the Admin Dashboard, and as a VIP Customer, our Customer Care Team is just a phone call or an email away from personally helping you with any questions you have.

Launch the tour to get an overview of the tools. It only takes a minute!

This step by step guide will familiarize you with everything. And VIP customer Care is a Click away at any time.

This step by step guide will familiarize you with everything. And VIP customer Care is a Click away at any time.

When Is the Switch Occurring?

The new Dashboard will go online for most School Administrators within the next few weeks. Some Administrators using newer school licenses will have the option to switch manually before that time. But don’t worry! The new tools are intuitive and simple to use. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. And if you should have any concerns…

We’re Here to Help with the Switch

Our goal is for all School Administrators to start using these new tools as soon as possible.  But you don’t have to go it alone! When you activate the new Dashboard, a direct link to Customer Care by telephone and email will become available to you. Just click “Get Help,” and we’ll display a number where you can give us a call. We look forward to helping you.

The NextGen Glog Is Now Fully Replacing the Classic Glog

Creation of New Classic Glogs Will Be Unavailable Starting This Week

As you are probably aware, some time ago we introduced the NextGen Glog Editor as a successor to the original Classic Glog Editor. This was done to allow Glogster EDU to continue providing the latest and best tools to our millions of teachers and students on any device or operating system.

Beginning this week, for all registered users of Glogster EDU, it will no longer be possible to create new Classic Glogs. Previously created Classic Glogs will still be available. However, it is highly recommended that users not adapt previously created Classic Glogs, or employ Classic Glogs for Projects.

What’s going to happen to my Classic Glogs?

We know that many teachers on Glogster EDU have invested considerable effort and time in creating incredible content, and many students likewise have poured their creative energies into Glogster EDU, creating a legacy of amazing Classic Glogs that stretches back nearly 4 years, numbering now in the TENS OF MILLIONS of Glogs.

That work, time, love and effort is as valuable to us at Glogster EDU as it is to you. It is at the heart of what Glogster EDU is: a platform for creating and sharing, and building knowledge together. We will work to preserve that content and allow it to continue to thrive on the NextGen Platform.

Within a few months, Glogster EDU will publish instructions on how to update Classic Glogs, transforming them into NextGen Glogs. Users will be free to update their Classic Glogs manually. At some point in the future, once we are sure that a majority of users have taken the time to preserve and update the Glogs that they have invested their time and effort in, we will automatically update the remainder of Classic Glogs, transforming them automatically into NextGen Glogs. At that point, the Classic Glog Engine will be shut down for good.

Why Take the Classic Glog Offline?  

Times change, and we must change with them. While the Classic Glog Editor was enormously popular, and helped shape Glogster EDU into the global platform it has since become, the programming language upon which it was originally based, a version of Adobe Flash, has been superseded a more modern version. In addition, the popularity and spread of mobile devices based on new programming architectures has made support of the Classic Glog Editor untenable. Glogster EDU has seized the opportunity to develop and introduce something entirely new, and totally original: the NextGen Glog Editor. And it is with enormous gratitude that we thank each and every one of our EDUcators who have been with us through this transition.  It hasn’t always been easy, but it has always been inspiring.

What’s Coming Next for NextGen? 

Today, the NextGen Glog Editor has grown into a rich creative environment, supporting a deep and vibrant community of EDUcators and students the world over. And as we move forward, NextGen will ensure that Glogster EDU is available on a variety of software platforms, from Windows to IOS, so that inspiration doesn’t need to take a break until students get to their desks, or until you get home.  And as we continue to focus our efforts on its improvement, you can expect exciting announcements of new features, and new capabilities still to come. Such developments as collaboration mode, in which multiple users can edit the same Glogs, the new EDU Graphic Library, seamless integration of your Glog Library with our upcoming Glog Editor App for iOS, and much, much more.

As the Classic Glog nears its end, we view this time as an exciting new beginning for Glogster EDU: one filled with surprises and wonder. We look forward to sharing it with you.

Glogster EDU Wants Your Contributions For the #EdKnow Initiative

Glogster EDU’s #EdKnow Initiative

Starting this month, Glogster EDU is launching a new Content Initiative, “#EdKnow,” to involve new Educators, administrators, public policy makers, and parents in the world of Education Technology, and provide the building blocks for teachers to get started with digital classrooms, new teaching and lesson planning technologies, and new, Edtech influenced ideas about teaching.

Best of all, we’re doing this by sharing the perspectives and ideas of our teacher community. With over 20 Million Glogs in Glogpedia, the Glogster EDU community has plenty of inspiration for teachers new to technology.

What Will Be the Outcome of This Initiative?

In the coming month, Glogster will be publishing a series of newsletters and Blog posts featuring input from YOU, our Glogster EDU community, as well as from Glogster team members, exploring the world of education technology with exciting, personalized narratives about technology integration, flipped teaching, BYOD solutions, creative teaching, digital citizenship, and lots more. We’ll be collecting these submissions in the forms of articles, videos, Glogs, and more, and publishing our own Glogs, available to every member of our community right from Glogpedia and their user dashboards.

This gives our community of EDUcators the potential of reaching millions of likeminded teachers and administrators who are using the Glogster EDU platform, and easily sharing and learning from the work of their Glogster EDU colleagues across the Globe. It’s an ambitious, exciting project, and we want YOU to be directly involved.

How Can I Get Involved?

Great question! You can get involved by creating a Glog, Blogging, or Vlogging, or making a video presentation (if you’re not sure about how to incorporate everything into one Glog!) about your creative uses of technology in the classroom. and submitting it to be published here on the Glogster EDU Blog!

Tell us the story of how you incorporate creativity and digital resources into your teaching practice; be it through a flipped learning approach, through social networking, through the use of mobile devices, or smart boards. Do you have a WordPress classroom, or do you use Twitter, Edmodo, or Glogster EDU? Write about your experiences so that we can publish them.

Teacher In Classroom

Submit your idea for an article you’d like to write about Teaching with Technology to edknow@glogster.com today!

We’ll be collecting all kinds of content. Whether you’re a podcaster or a writer, or write a Blog, or run a Youtube channel, or a pirate radio station, we’ll accept your submissions. The best, most thought-out and complete submissions, in any format, we’ll share as a part of our monthly newsletters, on our boards at Scoop.it, and here on our Blog, as well as to our followers on Twitter and Facebook.

What Should I Talk About?

We’re looking for well thought-out, well honed works that speak for themselves- not just articles that mention ideas, but that explain them. Not just videos that tell you to do something in your teaching, but videos that show you how it’s done, using multimedia to demonstrate the steps clearly.

We’re also looking for something unique, that hasn’t been published anywhere else yet. Naturally some submissions will bear similarities, and that’s fine. If you feel you have a new take on a perennial topic, we’d love to see it!

Here are some ideas on what kind of content we might accept (although there’s plenty that isn’t on our list!)

  • A Glog, Blog post or video about how to grow and manage an effective, diverse PLN (Personal Learning Network)
  • A Glog, Blog post or video about how to effectively, safely use social networking as part of your teaching practice
  • Glogs, Blog posts or videos about bringing creativity into different subject areas, and using technology to cross disciplines, with examples from real life.
  • Glogs, Blog posts or videos about Digital Citizenship, and how to effectively teach ethical use of technology
  • Glogs, Blog posts or videos about Glogster EDU, and Digital Storytelling, with examples from real classrooms

What Kinds of Things Won’t Work?

We’re not looking for advertisements or link-swapping for promotional purposes. But as long as it isn’t just an advertisement, you can write about any product you use in real life.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We’re also not able to publish anything that has been published somewhere else already.

We’re also not going to post your graduate thesis or academic paper. While we love that you spent so much time and effort on it, we want something that an Educator, an administrator, or a technology specialist can read and refer to easily, and that can be easily shared with that person’s PLN. You could always use a part of that thesis, or even just an abstract of the thesis, and make that into a very engaging blog post. We’d love to be able to publish whatever is sent to us, so the only real “rule” is that it has to be engaging.

This means the content should be geared towards practical, real world advice and experience, and less about theory and philosophical arguments. Don’t get us wrong! We love theory and philosophy, just not for the content in this Initiative.

Got it! Now, How Can I get my work Published??

That’s easy. Email us a proposal for your work, describing in brief what it is you want to say, and how you want to say it. You can send that email to our Content Manager, Lloyd at lloyd.waldo@glogster.com. 

Lloyd or another Glogster EDU team member will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your idea or give you the okay to go ahead. All submissions *will* receive individual responses. Once you’re done, we’ll work with you to make sure your content has an audience, and gets shared as widely as possible

We Can’t Wait to Hear about your Ideas!

Email us your Idea for a Blog post or a Video (or any other Multimedia Presentation) at lloyd.waldo@glogster.com

Summer News and Highlights: Lots Going on at Glogster EDU!

Summer 2013: Community News & Highlights

While it’s summer in America, and most schools have been on break, Glogster EDU has been hard at work. While that may sound like a bummer for some teachers and students who get the summer off, for us it’s exciting! We get to spend the summer improving Glogster EDU, and staying connected with millions of users who stick around during vacation too!

Educators Talking about Glogster EDU

Educator Craig Seasholes (@craigseasholes), created a fantastic presentation this summer for PSESD: Pudget Sound Educational Service District. The presentation showcases a range of Glogs about Glogster EDU, and Digital Learning. Check it out by clicking below!

Presentation

What’s Glogster Working on?

Lots of neat stuff. Here’s a popular question we’ve been asked a lot.

Yes! We’ve done it at Glogster HQ. Our new iPad app is now beyond the prototype stage, and we are working on the product design and testing for our release of Glogster EDU for ios! The app now works smoothly and intuitively. We’ve found that Glogging is even better on an iPad than it is on a web browser, and because of the multitouch features of an iPad, the interface is more intuitive and more fluid than ever before. Plus, the iPad app includes exciting new features, among them: collaboration on multiple iPads, taking photos and videos directly from real life into a Glog, and importing whole webpages, like wikipedia entries, into a Glog. When are we releasing? We are planning for an October release. This means that Glogster EDU for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch will be available in time for the Fall semester in the US!

Attend our Technology Summit! 

Learn more about our plans for the iPad at our Technology Summit, on Wednesday, August 28th at 10:30 EST.

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 received this summer:

Christa Herring from Prairie Hills Colorado had this to say:

“It is exciting for me to take a step back and observe students using critical thinking and reasoning skills as they sift through information to pick just the right picture, compose the perfect title, or write an interesting paragraph to convey knowledge of a particular topic. Last year, we created Glogs to wrap up our study of the American Revolution. Students were responsible for making their own digital poster. While some students worked alone, other children quickly collaborated linking Glogs together showing a comprehensive look at the American Revolution. They loved working with Glogster! After finishing our projects, my fifth graders helped two first grade classes to create Glogs of their own to show what they had learned about animals. What a fabulous and motivating way for children to work with other grade levels.”

Digital Storytelling with Glogster EDU

Digital Storytelling with Glogster EDU

A part of teaching is storytelling. As a teacher, you tell the story of the world around you. The history, the mechanics, the reasoning behind everything that your students observe and wonder about.

Digital storytelling allows us to take a linear series of events and bring them to life in a multidimensional experience; to communicate, collaborate, by infusing all types of media into the process.

And Digital storytelling can be practiced anywhere; in almost any imaginable form: in homes, schools, libraries and businesses, by anyone from beginner technology users to experts. In education, teachers and students use digital learning concepts across all content areas, and all grade levels.

The Glogster EDU team comes across amazing Digital Storytelling every single week in Glogpedia. So we thought we’d share some of that here.

What makes Great Digital Storytelling? 

Here are a few ideas:

Style and Substance

government12345FlemmingBachRevolucion Mexicana

Great digital storytelling gives more than the facts: it gives a bit of atmosphere as well. By incorporating different styles of text, music, or historical documents and photos (bonus points for links to resources and videos of key concepts and places), the story being told really comes alive.

Depth and Connectedness

PermutationsFundamental Counting Principle

London CultureLondon Architecture

Great Digital Storytelling also tells a story in different ways. It presents more than the facts: it also gives the learner a reason and a way to learn more about the subject. It presents information that inspires discovery, and offers ways to make those new discoveries easily: by linking to different resources.

Digital Storytelling isn’t just told, but experienced. It serves as a gateway to a whole universe of new information and insight- it is not self-contained, and doesn’t have to be.

Relevance

Carbos  Game History

We think great digital storytelling is also about making a case for what’s important, and finding out what’s important to the person experiencing your story. It distills the facts and relevant information, and helps guide the learner to teach him or herself more about the topic. It sparks interest, and gives a reason as to why this new branch of knowledge can be attractive and useful.

Glogster EDU Launches Home Edition!

Glogster EDU Launches Home Edition!

Over the past 3 years, the Glogster Team has watched education technology become a revolution in the way that we think about the roles of teachers and students. As technology and society continue to change more and more rapidly, the role filled by the traditional school system has had to change too, as we discussed deeply in our recent Ebook: Connect to the Revolution.

Another big change that’s been occurring, especially in the United States, is a resurgent interest in Homeschooling. In about a decade, the number of homeschooled students in the US has more than doubled, with the percentage of students primarily learning at home increasing to about 3% of all American students, meaning that today over 2 million American students are homeschooled. And the trend shows signs of speeding up, as learning resources become more affordable, and more accessible to parents and communities outside the public school system.

What is Home?

Why Glogster EDU is Coming Home

Noting this trend, the Glogster Team has created a perfect package to meet the needs of the homeschool environment. Not only does Glogster EDU base itself upon the idea that student oriented learning, in which young learners direct their own paths toward acquiring knowledge and skills, is the shining future of 21st Century education, but homeschooling parents and homeschoolers across American emphatically agree. Creative, self-directed, explorative, and deeply insightful learning is not only up to the truly great parents and teachers among us: students need tools and modes of expression that are relevant to them, and not just to us. That’s what Glogster EDU has been about from the very beginning. The perfect fit.

What Glogster EDU Home Edition Can Help Kids Accomplish

We could talk about features first, but Glogster EDU Home Edition is about accomplishments. It’s about the feeling, the knowledge, that you have engaged with a new topic, and that you have learned and produced something of great value to yourself. Here are some things young learners have accomplished with Glogster EDU:

Independent Thinking and Reasoning: Glog creation requires students to think for themselves, and engage with topics in non-passive ways; that they think not only about what something means, but about how that meaning can be expressed to someone else. And there’s no better way to do that than to base learning upon outcomes: creative and engaging projects that kids will enjoy working on, that they will be proud of, and that ask to be shared and cherished.

Creative Skills: Often the first thing that we lose in education when we focus on tests and grades, memorization and repetition, is that learning is about synthesis. Knowledge of something is not very good if we cannot find ways of expressing that knowledge, and that’s why Glogster EDU has been so popular since its inception. Glogster EDU learners connect with the information they are absorbing during the process of synthesizing it into something meaningful that they wish to express: they learn by teaching. They are their own teachers.

Love of Knowledge: Many of us feel that the topics we loved in school were our favorites because we were better at them. But often we forget that we were also better at these topics because we loved them. Because a teacher or one of our parents inspired us to be passionate, and we used that passion to master the subject. It wasn’t work to learn, because we loved knowing more. With Glogster EDU, knowledge is not the only goal, because it doesn’t have to be. We trust that knowledge follows passion, and passion arises from a child’s need to express himself or herself- to understand and to be understood by others. Knowledge is a happy by-product of the love of knowledge.

But What Are the Features?

Of course we’re proud of our award-winning features too! Here are a few things parents and kids can use Glogster EDU to do:

Organization: Group your kids into classes, to keep track of progress in different subject areas. There’s no limit to the number of classes you create- you can use this feature flexibly to organize different projects and work in many different areas at one time, sending comments and messages specific to different subject areas.

Creativity: Students all over love Glogging. Kids have created over 25 Million Glogs so far, about just about anything you can imagine. There is no limit to what can be done. Drag and drop images, graphics, video and audio directly from your content library into a Glog, and upload, embed or link content from anywhere on the web. It’s that easy! The Glog platform appeals to different learning styles, offering something for each type of learner, and for differentiated learning in every subject.

Templates and Projects: Pick a starting point for any project, and then let your kids take control. Grading and commenting, as well as messaging and sharing on social media, are just a click away. You can choose to assign projects based on specific requirements, or you can take a hands-off approach, and let students direct their own interests. That’s up to you- the tools allow you to take your own approach.

Sharing: Once your child’s creativity is unleashed, there are a variety of ways to publish and share the results. Glogster EDU has tools for organizing Glogs into presentations and portfolios that can be shared across the web. Email these portfolios to friends or relatives, or share them in your Personal Learning Network, or on social media. You can even print them out and put them on the fridge- a classic never goes out of style.

Security: Glogster EDU has industry leading privacy controls. Share and enjoy your child’s creative endeavors safely, knowing that our platform protects your privacy with individual, secure logins, secure private messaging available only between you and your own children, and absolutely no advertising to minors.

Your Homeschoolers Deserve Glogster EDU

Become a part of the Glogster EDU community, and let us share something special with you every single day. All we ask is that you do the same: aspire to do something really creative, and really special with us- when you can, where you can. That’s what the Glogster EDU community is about. To find out more, find us on Facebook, Twitter and other social media around the web, or send us an email today to talk about Glogster EDU Home Edition. We’re at Sales at Glogster-dot-com.
