Prezi, Glogster & Tripline, oh my!
Tools your students will love
Prezi is known as the Zooming Presentation Tool. It's much more than that. When you delve into Prezi, you find it is much more intuitive than other presentation softwares allowing you to tell a story in a unique way.

Glogster prides itself on being a creative way for users to produce posters. But it's much more than just a traditional poster -- minus the glue. With the addition of animation, videos, and pictures, it allows users to create unique and interactive posters. It's really more than just a poster maker. Glogs can be used as easily updated webpages to be embedded on a teacher webpage or as a presentation in itself.
In my opinion, Glogster's options are geared more towards upper elementary school through middle school (grades 5-9) based on it's options and "creative" stickers, animations, and graphics.

"Basically, Tripline is a way for you communicate by putting places on a map. That's a very human activity that has been happening for thousands of years. Tripline adds a social layer to that communication so, whether you're a regular person or a rockstar, you can share where you're going, where you are and where you've been with the people you care about. That could be your family, your friends, or all of your fans on the web...it's up to you." (Tripline website)
