    Wallwisher

    sshott

      The tool I am going to share is Wallwisher - www.wallwisher.com

      Great tool for both teachers who are in a professional learning community or for teachers and students to work with in the classroom.

      So suggestions for use can be:

      • create a wall for questions about homework that studetns can post to daily
      • create a wall to capture brainstorming ideas from student groups
      • use a wall for sorting inforamtion with students during a class discussion
      • have students post suggestions for how to begin a new lesson or what topic in a unit they are interested in starting a new unit with.

       

      Do you have other suggestions for the use of this Web 2.0 tool? If so, reply to this message.

      If you have a new tool to share, start a new discussion!

          Hey Shelley! Thanks for sharing this tool. I love it and use it frequently as a pre-workshop activity to engage people in conversation.

           

          My current prompt is something like "What Does a 21st Century Classroom Look Like?". Participants work to add text and images of the tools, teachers and students in motion: talking, presenting, collaborating...it's been a successful activity so far and the added bonus is that participants are being introduced to it and learning it at the same time. Lots of fun!

          Some other ways we have used the tool:

          • Students create snippets of "stories" and gather them into a story line
          • Pre-filled stickies can be sorted into categories or organized for planning and my favorite:

           

          • Sharing session with teachers (include pictures and video) and then talking about which 21st century skills we see present!
