A Teaching Blog: Glogs in Education By far, glogs are one of my favorite things I have learned through the challenges for my class and I will DEFINITELY be using them in my future class! If you don't know what a glog is, it is a site where someone can design interactive, collage styled posters. You can add things to the poster such as images, text, audio/video, and links to other sites. The process of creating is glog is really simple. I created my first one and it is very self explanatory.
