People frequently post sticky notes on mirrors, refrigerators, file cabinets, bulletin boards, computer monitors, and so many other places to remind themselves of important dates, meetings, etc. Have you used online sticky notes? If so, do you have a resource you particularly like?
I recently found a few online sticky note programs listed below.
Has anyone used any of these? Do you have recommendations?
I haven't used these with students so I don't have a lot of insight but I took a look at the Primary Wall and I like the look of that a lot for elementary students. I think that it could be used as an alternative to chat room or back channel for younger students. Teachers could have students write a sentence for a spelling word on a sticky note for homework and they can all read each others sentences. Or they can write questions for their teacher. It could also be a cute place for a class to post reminders so if students forget a homework assignment or something they were taught in class that day, they could check the sticky notes!
Sticky Notes are a standard feature on Mac OS X. Great way to organize your day and to do lists! Change note colors for green- to do; yellow- need to do but can wait; and red- do it NOW/ASAP. However, these notes remain on your computer for your personal use.
By using a web based sticky note type program, you are able to share, print, collaborate and more. One of the web tools I like is Thoughtboxes. I am able to create a 'new list' and add boxes. I am able to indicate a task, a note or a link. Organizing thoughts in this manner is proving to be very helpful for me.
I love the online sticky notes for planning, brainstorming, and sharing. I have used Wall Wisher and it works resonably well. When you refresh the wall it gets sort of wonky.
A couple of my coworkers suggested linoit and said they like it better than Wall Wisher.
Will have to try out the others.
Web based sticky notes, such as those at PrimaryWall and Padlet, formerly WallWisher, allow for quick and easy communication of ideas and collaboration. PrimaryWall is simple and user friendly and works well in an elementary classroom. Padlet is a bit more like an online note board and one is able to add graphics, URL, and music.
Ways to use these tools are many:
