I posted this on our science blog but thought that more could benefit from the suggestions....

After our three day intensive technology brain melt I decided to jump off the high dive and have my AVID students do a Glogster page to introduce themselves to me and thier classmates. There were a few glitches in the beginning like all the accounts were registered as females (much to the consternation of my 8th grade boys), you cannot seem to sign in sometimes no matter how many times you try (we learned to move to a different computer ~ it helps for whatever reason), and if you change your password it sometimes locks out your account all together.

BUT!! We have persevered and managed to create some really cool pages!

Here are some hints for starting your own Glogster accounts:
1. Sign up on Glogster/edu for all 200 accounts. You will need some extras
2. Pick a simple nickname as it will assign it to all of your students and they cannot change it. A good one would be ACHS ~ then the students would be s001.ACHS and s002.ACHS and so forth.
3. If at first you don't succeed, walk to another computer!

Have fun!!

Great project, way to hang in there through the tech glitches. Would you share the link to your Science Blog, I would enjoy reading and commenting.

I am looking forward to coming over and checking these out. That does sound a little frustrating at first, but the payoff must have been worht it.
