Forget Blogging... Start Glogging with Glogster.

Hey everyone! I stumbled over this website after watching a video about a twelve year old girl's PLE. Glogster is similar to blogging, but it is way more interactive. You can add backgrounds, pictures, videos, sounds, and movement to your glog. A glog looks like a virtual poster/ad. I found this one glog below, and I realized how great it would be for classes. This is one I could use in an English class, but the possibilities are endless. Glogster is a great tool to use for anything! I hope you enjoy!

Not Only Math : An Excellent Example of a Teacher Sharing her Knowledge, Experience, and Tools to Help Students, Parents and Teachers Alike

(This is the Logo - I love it!)

This site is interesting in a number of ways. I was looking for a fun resource for math games that would be appealing to kids in Kindergarten, 3rd, 5th, and 8th grade when I learned of

To all my teacher type friends... This site is a great add to your personal learning network. For those in Math Education, the material is priceless. For those not of the math sector, read Karen's account of how she brought her student success rates from 35% to 75-80% just by revamping her teaching approach.
Hope the summer is going great for all!!!!

PS- It's free. :)

For all you book lovers out there, Shelfari is the site for books and readers. It is a place where you can add books that you want to read, are reading, and have read. You can join groups, add friends, and discuss your favorite books. I found this site through my RED 352 teacher, Dr. Tunks. She has required us to add books to our shelves as we go through the class. I absolutely love literature, so I have already added over 50 books that I have read and loved. I have also added a widget to my blog. You can either click on it, which is located to the left, or click here.
