Savings Alert: Glogster EDU - discounted for a limited time

About a year ago, I blogged about how my students used Glogster to complete some projects for their Social Studies class.

Today, I'm so excited to share with you all the fact that from now until February 28th March 6th, Glogster EDU has reduced their pricing from $99 a year down to $20 a year. Discovering this news late last week was better than finding out that Five Guys Burgers and Fries now has a "Little" size for their french fries. But, I digress.

Glogster is a wonderful multimedia tool that is easy enough for a third grader to use. It basically functions as an online poster filled with text, color, pictures, animation, links....you name it, Glogster can almost always include it. In addition to the vibrancy of this Web 2.0 tool and the ease of its use, there's a communication tool that allows the everyone within a classroom to send messages to one another. The teacher can monitor all of the communication that takes place, both through the messaging system and the commenting boards. The teacher also has the ability to retrieve and change student passwords as needed.

Overall, I give this tool an A+.

Plus, the price is a hard one to pass up on in this economy.

Below is an example of what one of my students created on Glogster.
