Hi Andrew- I checked out the glogster site. Really cool. The posters are really sharp looking. Do students usually print their posters? Is it possible to upload the finished posters to Second life or another virtual environment?
Hi Andrew- Thanks for the invite. Yeah. I'm from Maine, but currently live in S. Korea. I have been to Grafton before (it's a really nice place). Your project looks really interesting. I'll definitely check-out your site.
Hi Andrew, this looks like a great tool. I added a link to it on the http://www.tutormentorconnection.org site. If some of the classrooms who are using this are looking for content ideas, please point them to me. I lead a non profit in Chicago that connects volunteers with inner city kids in structured, non-school tutor/mentor programs. The web site host tons of information that people can use, but we have little advertising to draw users. Thus we use social networking. If kids in service-learning and technology projects using Glogster and other cool tools were creating posters and ads at different times of the year to draw potential volunteers and donors to tutor/mentor programs and other non profits in their community, or in the world, this would be a great application of the technology and would be a great benefit to the charities, too.
We host a conference in May and November and a Volunteer Recruitment campaign starting in August and running through September. In these time frames, lots of students creating posters for a purpose could give lots of visibility to the technology, the students and the charities. If you see opportunities to help, please do so.
With your work in Online Collaboration, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
