Lino It: An online bulletin board

The picture above is from Lino It, a program that operates like an online bulletin board. It allows multiple users to post stickies or other media such as photos and webpages to a common page that can have a variety of different backgrounds.

I immediately thought of different ways this could be used in the classroom. For example, if the kids in a book club each posted stickies with their thoughts on the pages they were reading for the next book club meeting, everyone in the group would already be aware of the different thoughts of the other book club members and would really be primed for the conversations! Students could also post questions and information they might look up in response to their questions so everyone could read, learn, and respond.

Have you used Lino It? Post your thoughts and/or activities.
