These types of sites allow you to create a hosted website with meaningful content in minutes (OK, lots of minutes) rather than hours or days. Furthermore- they are hosted automatically and for free. And we all love free!

Glogster

Glogster is a dynamic, web wall that can include images, text, scrapbook-like embellishments, video, audio, stamps, and more. These can be used by students to show their understanding of almost any concept. This is great for alternate forms of assessment, enrichment, and just to let students chew on and digest concepts.


Consider this for things such as:
  • 5 W's for specific events
  • Biography
  • Book report alternative
  • Student response journal
  • Teacher instructions
