Glogster…. something new and interesting

I’ve been checking out this learning tool and have found it to be interesting and useful.  Glogster is an alternative to blogging.

As a teacher you are also able to create students accounts which are private so there are no issues with students identities being compromised.

Myths and Legends and the Olympics!

Another one to check out is

This site is devoted to Greek Myths and the history of them. A very valuable source of information including ancient Greek history, stories, the Olympics and Greek Gods.
