WallWisher Video Tutorial!

This is Sarah from Miss A's Kindergarten, and I've got just the thing for you.
Today's tool is super exciting.
I can definitely see myself using it.
This is my most recent VIDEO TUTORIAL!


So without further ado...

Let me teach you how to use...

WallWisher


WallWisher is the name. It's an online bulletin board, of sorts. You can add sticky notes to a "wall" you create and then share it with people so they can add on to it. It's very collaborative, interactive...and best of all...
It's VERY FREE!

Yes, a free tool. We love the word F-R-E-E, don't we?

How can it be used in the classroom??

 Here are some tips on ways to implement this amazingly free tool:
  • Use it in centers! You can put a group of videos from YouTube on the "wall" for kids to watch and to give a response. It can also be a great way for you to teach a concept while they're at centers.

  • Give the link to parents for planning parties, field trips, etc! This tool will allow parents to quickly respond and let you know what they plan on bringing to that Valentine's day party you're planning.

  • Share with your colleagues! Make a wall where you can post encouraging messages to the people you work with. It may be a great bucket-filler activity for us teachers. Everyone loves a warm fuzzy!

  • Keep some of your important information or to-do lists there! It can be set to only be viewed/edited by you, and it's pretty customizable. AND it's online. Who'da thought!

Watch the video!









Check out the wall where you can respond to my question!


I'm excited about the responses I've been getting to my video tutorials!
You make it all worth it.
I hope that I'm helping lots and lots of people learn about free tools to use in the classroom!

  3. Wow! Thanks for the tutorial. We have to get an account!!! We are thinking of using it to separate our youtube videos by unit. You could build a wall per unit.

  4. Yes I would definitely use this tool! I just made one for my students and posted on Edmodo of them to share their favorite summer activity! This would also be a great tool to use as an exit slip.
