Autobiography Project

Autobiography Assignment: Due Friday

Students are required to come up with a project that is a “quick” autobiography of their lives. This is a great way for students to share things about themselves that others may not know.

Students may create posters, cubes, PowerPoints or use Glogster EDU to share their information.
If you are using Glogster your usernames and passwords will be ready Tuesday.

Glogster EDU is a tool to create online multimedia “posters” that can incorporate all types of elements into a visual space: links, images, text, videos, music, and more. Students will have multiple ways to express themselves and to learn from each other, making it easy to differentiate and engage each student. The ad-free EDU community offered by Glogster is designed to alleviate the problems of inappropriate content and contact with “outsiders” not welcome in my class’s electronic community.

Autobiography Project Requirements:

1. All sides or spaces consist of information about your life.
2. Objects that represent you/your life are put inside of biocube or brought to class. Student must have at least two objects. See me about pictures for powerpoints and Glogster.
3. Makes excellent use of font, color, graphics/pictures, effects, etc. to enhance project.
4. Product shows a large amount of original thought. Ideas are creative and inventive.

I am a bit confused about this assignment. Does the student email the completed work or is this "site" going to allow printed work etc. If a child does not have internet access how will they present this assignment IE: Essays, posters, booklets???

Hi! if the student chooses to do Glogster, they receive an account today and they must post it to my site on Glogster. If they do a powerpoint, they can email me the powerpoint or bring it on a flash drive. If they do not have access to a computer/internet, I have biocubes and posters. The biocubes and posters are not created on a computer. I hope this answers your question.

Hi.. If we lost the password, but published the blog; is there any need to log back in? Once the blog has been published is there anything else that has to be done?

Sorry I just saw the comment. I can give you a copy of the nickname and password. If the student publishes the blog, everything is ok.
