Create a Glog to Encourage Colonization

Today you will be exploring Glogster. Glogster is like a digital poster where you can embed audio, video, pictures, and sound. Play with it a little and see what you can do with it.

Your assignment is to create a mutli-media Glog to encourage emigration to a new colony. Your Glog must contain the following:

  1. A video- This can be a commercial for the new colony, a tour of the new colony, an infomercial about the new colony or another idea you come up with. You can take your own video with a camera or use Xtranormal. I must warn you that Xtranormal takes a few days to figure out and it can be difficult to embed. It does make interesting videos though.
  2. At least 3 pictures- These should show scenes of the new colony, maybe a new map of the colony, and/or different ideas you may come up with. This does not include clip-art.
  3. Audio: Glogster allows you to create audio through the program. You ca also use or Voki to create the audio. The audio can be a radio-type advertisement, a testimonial from a colonist, a message from the Governor of the colony, or something you may come up with.
  4. Text: Don't overdo the words on the Glog. Let the pictures, video, and audio do the real work. 
Make sure your Glog's background, lettering, etc. are appealing and work with the theme of the assignment. I am not sure if we can embed html into a glog yet so we may not be able to use some of these tools. I will let you know when I find out.
