What is it?
An online pin board that everyone can pin things on. Allows teachers and pupils to collaborate on one web page. Double click the web page to add a new note. Fill in your name and enter your text and links to relevant websites including videos. Good for whole class. No sign-in required to post messages, but accounts quickly created (good idea for teacher to keep a library of their walls).
- Quick text ideas (160 limit per post)
- Share instantly
- Add links
- Embed videos on screen
- Create your account to store a library of your walls
- Embed into your VLE (Bernard) so pupils can view posts from within your learning course
- Moderation of posts
- Fake identity (classroom management issue – demerit, detention – and you can delete any post)
- Free, so may get turned off or charged for at some point; but whilst it’s free, why not make the most of it?
- Create account
- Build a wall
- Share URL with pupils (link on Bernard or VLE, or email them or tell them)
- Can be used in an ICT room, but at it’s best when pupils access it outside the lesson and at different times.
