Wallwisher

Have you heard about Wallwisher? Basically, it’s online post-it notes and can be used in a number of ways. As a teacher all you have to do is create an account, create your wall, and send your students to the wall. When creating your wall there are a number of options for who can see the wall and who can post to it. You can even set it so that you as the teacher must approve any posts on the wall before they become public. When someone posts to the wall they can even post an image or document into their “post-it.” So how can you use Wallwisher in your classroom? Here’s just a few ideas

Parking lot for questions – some students are just more comfortable not raising their hand in class
Posting hypotheses prior to a class experiment
Reflections on class readings or activities
Book review
Exit tickets – Have students post what they learned from the day’s lesson to the wall
