Character Poster vs. the Glogster Poster

I feel like both assignments were good to show creativity and uniqueness for an individual student. When doing the character poster, we used excel. This way I thought was an okay way to create a poster but is very simplistic in its use. On the other hand sometimes simplistic is better. Glogster I found was a lot easier to use and provided a wider range of resources and could be very complex. When it came down to use, I liked glogster better than excel. I feel like excel would be better used…

Excel vs Glogster

In creating posters for our class, I found Excel to be more user friendly.  It was easy to upload everything I wanted and looked nice in the end.  I did not like making my glog at all!  I had technical difficulties where the program would unexpectedly stop and shut down without automatically saving my work.  This was extremely frustrating to me!  However, on Glogster, there were more options to choose from and edit to make the page unique.  In the end, I was pleased how the poster turned…

Comparison of Glogster and Character Posters

I am currently enrolled in an education technology class and have been asked to describe my opinion and experience of the development of Character posters as opposed to a Glogster.  

I should first start out by describing what the activities are respectively.

A character poster is an activity in which we were asked to engage Microsoft Excel to form a large info-graphic of ourselves. This entailed a photo, a word describing us as a person, and then the definition of that…

MIA for MEd

Since my last posting, I have been pursuing a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration on E-Learning.  It has kept me busy and broke but has proven to be a transformative experience. 

The journey started because I wanted to find ways to better support the teachers I work with. 

A little background is in order...I run education programs at a large Tony Award-winning theatre in Chicago.  Goodman Theatre has a slate of educational and engagement programs but…

Character Poster vs. Glogster Poster

I created a character poster which was done on an excel spreadsheet. I took a picture and then enlarged to span across for pages including my name, a character trait that fits, and then the definition of that trait. I also created a Glogster poster about knitting with different pictures demonstrating different knitting styles as well as a video demonstration. Creating these projects was a very good experience. I had never used pictures in excel and I had also never used Glogster before. I…

Character Poster vs. Glogster Poster

For me, I think they are both really great ideas and fun to use. I felt like creating a character poster was a little bit easier than using Glogster, but that could have been that my computer does not seem to like Glogster at all. So there was some frustration with Glogster on my end. In my opinion, they are both rewarding and beneficial. With Character Posters, the creator can basically create a spread sheet of information like you could in Microsoft Word but to a higher level. With…

Excel vs. Glogster

I thought that the Excel character poster was "easier" to do because it took less time and it was an easy process to follow. There was room for a little creativity but it was too the point and simple. However, I enjoyed doing the Glogster poster better. I liked being able to insert different pictures, facts, videos, etc. into one poster. One thing that really frustrated me about the Glogster poster was when you inserted a picture, you couldn't make it wider or taller. The picture could only…

Difference between last week and this week's assignments

The differences between the Character Poster and the Glogster assignment are that Glogster is more user friendly to older students, whereas the character poster could be better for younger students. The character poster could be made without technology, and Glogster has to use the internet and computer. Glogster allows for more creativity because of the options it has, and the character poster would not allow for as many creative opportunities.

Over the last couple of days of class I have learned how to create posters using two different kinds of technological media. I created two different kinds of posters. The first poster was created using excel. This character poster was a way of giving a little bit of insight into myself. I took an image that i had saved on my computer and loaded it onto excel. I then expanded the image so that it took up four pages. After this I added a couple graphics and some text boxes in an attempt to add…
