LINOIT

Linoit is an alternative to Wallwisher, which I used earlier on in the year with keystage 3 students and their parents!  I have heard of Linoit, but until now had not used it.  Thanks to @lagerama for reminding me about it.  So I’ve decided to give it a go with my Year 13 students, as part of their next theory topic.  It looks pretty good, liking the different coloured stickes!  I wonder what my students will make of it and their task.  You can see their task (yet to be started) here.

ISSUU

Issuu is an online magazine/document website, where you can browse online publications, share and even publish your own material.  I have’t yet explored it fully, but it is well worth a look.

QWIKI

Great website/search engine.  Well worth checking out, especially on Towns, Cities.

SYMBALOO

As a Teacher and mother of 3 girls, the youngest being 13 years old, I can’t live without SYMBALOO.  I have created a variety of webmix pages to store my favourite webpage links, including webpage links for my daughters!  I highly recommend this Web 2 Tool.

WALLWISHER

I use WALLWISHER on occasions with my students because I love the simplicity of it and ease of use.  The students seem to like the real-time update of it too, although you have to monitor some of their comments!

I am currently working on a Project with year 8 ICT students and Spreadsheets that will involve Parents posting comments on a wall regarding their own personal use of Spreadsheets that we can then discuss in class.

Wallwisher Housing System: This was a tutor group project I created with my tutor group and a link school we have in South Africa.  We have a vertical tutoring system at our College and the students were excited at receiving posts from South Africa.  Also because Wallwisher is on the world wide web for everyone to see, another School in Devon posted their house details on our wall too!

VOKI

I have used VOKI with my year 12 AS ICT students to ask exam questions.  It was a fun, enjoyable lesson because I created weird characters to ask the questions, and one they remembered!

As you can see I have included a VOKI on my About Page!  I just wish there were more choices.

MINDMEISTER

I love this program because it is real-time brainstorm mindmapping.  Used with my post 16 “A” level ICT students on one of the Topics taught last year, I started off the discussion and invited my class to take part.  They added comments and together we brainstormed activities.  I then printed out individual copies for the class as a revision guide.
