Ignore copyright and rip off authors

While I see comments saying how great it is they can download various books ( mine have nothing to do with education of kids ) they dont care about blatant breach of copyright.

Nothing but problems!

We had a project due the next day and were working on it with much frustration till midnight with my son. Guess what?!! The next day it was gone even though we saved our work! Use it at your own risk!! On top of it, you have to pay for this malfunctioning website!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (12 ):
Kids say (18 ):

Glogster is visually appealing and offers users lots of options for designing their glogs. Some teens might find the editing modules a little tricky, since there's no tutorial or rollover text that explains the icons. Useful iPad app allows for creation on-the-go. The glogs themselves are a mixed bag; some are creative and even inspiring, but a few are hateful and biased.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
