Another of their assignments is the development of a Science Fair. You know —a Science Project, the Scientific Method and a Science Project Board to tell the story. This semester, Mrs. Mathis and I decided to step in a different direction. We elected to present to them – Glogster. Glogster is a Web2.o tool designed to poster yourself. The designed can create interactive posters easily and share them with friends. It allows one to mix images, text, music and video. Glogster sits at http://glogster.com. (Check it out! It is so cool! It is among the Top Web2.0 Classroom Tools!)
In teams, the students explored the Scientific Method and decided on a Science Fair Project. Plans were made carried out. Then, the students explored Glogster. “Think of it as being a Virtual Science Fair and the projects are online, ‘ they were told.
Glogster and the Science projects were united and the 1st Virtual Science Fair happened in EDU355. Yeah!
Explore these projects!
