Novels to Multimedia “Glogs”

North Country Road Middle School’s seventh graders in the Miller Place School District recently took historical fiction novels to the next level by creating “glogs,” or multimedia presentations aimed at enticing fellow students to check out the book they read. Students utilized a user-friendly visual platform, Glogster, to generate their presentations using combinations of text, images, and video, with audio creating an interactive canvas. After reading a historical fiction novel of their choice, students tapped into their creativity by organizing images, text boxes, and personal voice recordings to produce an appealing book trailer for others to enjoy. Students then uploaded their presentations to the Glogster site and anxiously waited to see how many views their glogs generated from fellow students, friends, and family.
