Wallwisher

Wallwisher is a web 2.0 tool you can use in your classroom for a multitude of activities.  It is essentially a web page where people can post their thoughts, ideas, concerns, likes, dislikes in a sticky note.  Wallwisher limits your sticky to 160 characters, so your comment must be succinct. You can log in with your gmail account, so you don’t have to create another account and try to remember your username and password!  Below is a demo wall provided by Wallwisher.

What are the applications for a program such as this?

  • To do list
  • KWL charting
  • Categorizing or create a venn diagram
  • Collect feedback
  • Have student post questions
  • Debate
  • Scavenger hunt for photos representing a math/geometry concept
  • Student book reviews
  • Student pledge on Earth Day
  • 100th day of school activity
  • Post goals for the year
  • 97 things to do before I graduate (bucket list)
  • Post websites or resources for student projects

This list is of course just a short list of suggestions.  Please let us know how you have used Wallwisher in your classroom, I would love to hear from you!  There are many more ideas to come!
