Glogging= Poetry after Blogging

Did you know there was poetry in digital technology?  Who designs these weird and wonderful, nonsensical names?  I really think that the weirder the name, the more popular the site will become.  Please can some techno geek design a romantic name for me:) 

This week Matt and I "glogged",  and no, this does not mean we imbibed too much grape juice, but rather Matt and I schooled ourselves in the anatomy of a glog poster page.  To learn this we went to Glogster

My role as the "facilitator"in this process of digital learning was to design a teachable topic, brainstorm some ideas, send him to the URL and watch the visual dynamics upload.  Excited with learning a new application Matthew inhaled his objectives, digested the terms, analysed Christian perspective of his topic and created his poster.  As he profoundly said "this is so easy to use even my mom and sister can do it".  He was proud of his Outreach poster and although he could not properly load the music he declared this a work in progress!  Please let me know if you get your students producing a Glog?  I would love to add some samples to our library interface:)

PS If you would like to test your student's knowledge of the Internet and computer terminology have them read the Google E Book.

Thank you God for encouraging me in this process, and for allowing my son to become excited about learning a new application and making Bible an artistic process:)

God Bless you in your discovery of digital technology! I look forward to chatting with you.
