1. Using Glogster EDU for Project-Based Learning on Wednesday, April 4 at 3 pm EDT
Glogster EDU + PBL = A++! Project-based learning is more than just “doing projects.” Glogster EDU makes effective PBL easy. Help your students develop inquiry, research, time management, communication, presentation, leadership, and reflection skills on a fun and engaging platform.
Mike from the Glogster EDU Team will show you how to start a Glog project, create a template, assign it to the class, monitor progress, and provide feedback with Glogster EDU Premium. He’ll also provide you with plenty of example Glogs and lesson plans to get you started.

3. Navigate Our Digital World Through Glogster EDU Eyes & Make Connections to CCSS (Common Core State Standards) on Thursday, April 19 at 4 pm
Hosted by Andrea Gardner, Instructional Technology Specialist at Westford Public School in Westford, MA.
According to their mission statement, the Common Core State Standards “provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”
During this Webinar, we will:
•Understand how technology is part of the Common Core Standards
•Identify specific examples of where technology is located within the CCSS
•Share what that looks like through Glogster EDU eyes
•Review and discuss technology, multimedia and the 4Cs
•Present possible options for moving forward with integrating technology into the classroom
