Techno Tools – Glogster

Glogster is a service that lets you make digital posters for free. Their Edu Glogster zone is for the use of students and teachers with education related resources. You can add text, graphics, sound video and images to your glogster.  Its a great tool for students to present their work. It offer tons of colourful and fun borders, frames and wall designs letting you create appealing posters in a matter of minutes. It can be a great end-of-the-project presentation where students can gather all their different works in one great looking digital poster or a jam packed lesson plan from the teacher. The possibilities are endless.


For a feel of Glogster scroll down on Gloster Edu page where you can browse hundreds of glogsters created by students and teachers all over the world.

Though Glogster has a simple interface, those who are new to computers may find it a bit confusing.
