Tips and Tricks


    1. You can create a single slide Powerpoint Presentation. That presentation can be saved as a JPEG file (select this in the save menu in the File Type drop down). That slide will then be an image that can be imported into a Glog. The slide can contain text, a table, pictures etc..
    2. Teachers can create a Glog to use as an instructional tool. It is a central place to hold your links to videos, images, interactive websites and text. You can display your Glog using an interactive whiteboard or projector. The Glog will then be available to all students for future review or for students who are absent. All you have to do is provide them with the link to the Glog on your website, blog or wiki.
    3. Teachers can create a Glog that is a review for students or teaches a lesson. Students can access the Glog and move through the activities in the order they are labeled. This can be a center activity in the classroom or a whole group activity in the computer lab. The Sample Glog above: Solving Quadratic Equations was designed for this purpose.

Lesson Ideas

    • Show and label elements of a Fairytale
    • Advertisement (persuasive writing)

    • Posters about world hunger, carbon footprint, global issues.
    • Book reflections
    • Virtual trips
    • Geometry Vocabulary Posters - Have students take part in a scavenger hunt: Find examples of their vocabulary terms (parallel lines, perpendicular lines, acute angles, etc.) around the school and take photos of them with digital cameras. Then create a geometry poster with the images.
