Hi Michal,
You sent me the info about Glogster over a year ago and I love it!! I participated in a webinar last week and I was so surprised that districts in Texas were blocking it as a social networking site.
We are purchasing it for the whole school next year.
I have some wishes for the site... I have a harder time managing students/projects and deadlines. Also excited to know they are working on an iPad version.
Have you used Museum Box? Out of Great Britain I believe. But they grant US schools membership after contacting your principal. Also a multi-media presentation tool. Just a different format.
I have been using mindmeister for presentations.. Great on the SmartBoard... So is Dabbler.
I still like VoiceThread for artist statements and critiques... And we use wikispaces for online 'meetings'... I probably love my wikis the most... And glogs are so easy to embed...

After I sent my last email I realized that I had neglected to add the one
comment that I had intended to include. So here it is:

What NEW thing are you planning on trying with your classes next year? I
find that if I don't mix it up that I get bored, and it is hard to motivate
students when I am not excited about what we are doing. As I pointed out,
since I teach distance classes as well as having HS students in the
classroom with me I have been wanting to do something that brings students
together more. One idea had been to have students blog each week under a
specific blog that is set up just for our class - students would respond to
my comment as well as one of their classmates. The logistics of this isn't
hard to figure out, so I'm not worried about the blogging, but the one Web
2.0 that I REALLY want to try is Edmodo. Our social studies teacher has been
using this with his classes & loves it. Has anyone used it in the art room?
I know it is similar to Moodle. IF you use this or anything similar with
your high school (or middle school) classes, exactly how do you incorporate
it into your class? What do you post on it? Or are there better sites
(free)? I use Glogster with my Digital Class - how does anyone utilize this
site? Any others?
