Wallwisher is a very handy web 2.0 tool that we’ve had some fun with lately. A collaborative “sticky note” application, Wall Wisher is simple and effective to use. You can create an online notice board in seconds and then share it with others who can then add their own sticky notes. There’s no registration required and users can choose to post anonymously. In addition to simple notes, you can post images, music and videos.
This week, Grade 4 students created their own reading wall to share all their favourite books.
I’ve used Wallwisher as a live brainstorming tool to compile questions and ideas in a group and in workshops. We project the ‘wall’ up on a screen and watch as everyone posts their ‘sticky notes’. It’s also a handy tool to gather input from colleagues and students after hours and/or over a period of time.
