Sharing is caring!
Linoit.com is a wonderful tool for students to brainstorm, organise or even communicate. It offers an empty canvas whereon, depending on with whom you share it, people or guests can leave sticky notes. The sticky notes may feature links, videos, text, or images. A canvas can easily be embedded in a website, if you wish.
The tool is built in such a way that it allows you to highlight the newest notes, reminds you of important events, and enables you as an owner of the canvas to delete inappropriate messages.
I find Lino It the perfect tool to express opinions. Students can leave short sticky notes with their opinion (signed with their names; perfect way to make them take responsibility for their words), which can later be discussed in class. Quite recently I had students who were able to create a very informative poster out of the sticky notes; they really enjoyed working with the tool!
