RSS, Google Reader (and Glogster)

Video tutorials and links for RSS and Google Reader. 

Multimedia poster created with Glogster for Edu

For anyone who hasn't yet "met" Glogster, here are the basic facts, taken from the site:
# A web 2.0 platform that easily allows users to upload photos, videos, text, audio and more to create a unique online, interactive poster.
# A simple and easy interface designed to introduce basic concepts to students.
# A series of teamwork mechanisms to allow users to publish and share their creations and to collaborate with other users on joint efforts.
# A secure, private, safe platform that can be monitored directly by teachers.

This is too funny. My Fulbright application contained references to glogster. Does it "type" Hebrew? One of my thoughts was that kids, potentially EFL kids, could share cultural "glogs" since glogster doesn't require text. Is it widely used in Israel?

Hi Paul, no, unfortunately Glogster is another great tool that doesn't support Hebrew, although one could upload a graphic of Hebrew text.
As yet I don't think it is widely used in Israel, shame, I also think it would be great for EFL.
