Get Interactive with Glogs, Voicethread & the DE Builders


Traci Blazosky and Tom McGee


In this session, we will ignite your "creative mind" using free web2.0 tools such as

Glogster and Voicethread. We'll introduce how an interactive poster can help motivate

and communicate understanding of a topic. Using the Builders within DE streaming, we

will incorporate these tools and model how simple it can be to enrich instruction and

motivate student learning at the same time!
