A teacher (high school) has asked me for help, and I'm turning to you. She wants to give her students the option of creating a digital "scrapbook" for The Great Gatsby. They have used Glogster, but that won't work for this project. I have suggested prezi, but surely there are some other options out there? Does anyone have any recommendations? Anything you've tried and found to work successfully?

Why won't Glogster work? Anyway, if you're looking for something more scrapbook like, you could try http://www.scrapblog.com/ or http://www.smilebox.com/
Actually these were two I looked at, too. Have you used either? I am in the midst of trainings and haven't had the time to try them out yet for myself.
I've used both personally & like them. I haven't tried to use them with students. Smilebox requires a download of software to your computer which could be a problem in schools.
Thanks so much! This gives me some good direction.
For digital scrapbooks, I love Mixbook. http://www.mixbook.com The finished product can be shared with teacher/classmates, made public, or even printed (by mixbook -- nice quality) for a very reasonable price.
This looks interesting...I'll have to check it out. Thanks!
What about a zoho notebook? It edits like a word processor, easily allows the addition of images, video, html, slideshows, rss feeds, even whole webpages and it organizes them into "pages" just like a real scrapbook. The students can even share them with each other and the teacher.

I haven't tried the other resources though I will have to check them out.
Cool. I'll give it a try.
I read about the project. I don't agree with that Glogster couln't help as a tool. I think it is perfect one. I have tried Smilebox for that purpose too but my oppinion is Glogter is better:)
Check here - I made a tekstbook for my 2-nd graders, a poetry book, a and ect.
Kids can also share glogs and comment expressing their opinions, which is great!
Adobe has a new software coming out, where you will easily be able to create projects like this one. If anybody is interested in joining the Pre-Beta test, please email me at sameer.mehta@edelman.com
