Glogster Rocks!

Mrs. Abernethy went to Hershey to present "21st Century Learning with the Creative Cougars" at the Discovery Education Preconference Day of Discovery. Some of the creative cougars skyped in to answer questions from the audience. They were so excited to meet "Glogster Guy" and he enjoyed meeting them, too. He even sent these awesome shirts home! The Creative Cougars love Glogster even more now!


Mrs. Abernethy won this cool green screening system called Yoostar from Discovery Education in Hershey. Creative Cougars were busy putting it all together and figuring out how to use it this morning. Stay tuned for some awesome videos!!!!!
