May Community Highlights: Amazing Glogs by Amazing Gloggers, and More!

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.

I have written several posts about Glogster EDU on my own blog, so I am  thrilled to be asked to contribute as a guest blogger. After brainstorming for a while and searching through Glogster EDU’s website for writing ideas, I came across some fabulous Glogs that contain web tech tools for teachers. I was so inspired by the resources that these Glogs contain that I decided it would be a great subject for my first guest blog contribution. I found many Web 2.0 websites for teaching and learning that I have never heard of, and some that I have heard of but never have used.
