Pre-school Engagement Activities - Session 4

To create digital posters, we can use multimedia applications like PowerPoint  or KeyNote. Very often, we convert these "slides" into images/ PDF files as  static display. There are some online "poster" creation platforms that permits dynamic displays (which includes video clips). Glogster is one of them.

1. Create a Glogster account using your SST account.

  • Select your SST account when prompted which account to log in to.

2. Choose on "Create Your first Glog" and then choose the "Vertical" template

3. Identify from youtube a song that you like very much. Share the song - the video and lyrics in the poster; also include a paragraph to tell others why you like the song.

  • Use the title of the song as the heading of the poster.
  • You may use modify the template and insert other objects into the poster.

4. Save the glog. Click at "View This Glog". The Glog will be displayed.
