Here’s my portfolio on Glogster. It seemed to take a lot of time but like many tech. tools,you learn it by doing rather than by being explicitly taught. The process made me think about a blog post I recently read where the author, Gary Stager, stated that anyone can figure out how to create a PP etc…it’s intuitive and doesn’t need to be, indeed shouldn’t be explicitly taught. Instead, students should learn computer programming, how to problem solve and create. While I try to embrace new tools to help students be successful and more connected to their learning, I am concerned that I am not just replacing one tool (a pencil) for another (a computer keyboard).
