Tool #109: Wallwisher

Type:  Collaborative platform

Teacher:  All Levels (All Content Areas)

Student Use:  Respond to writing prompts, collaborate with peers

Wallwisher is a super simple collaborative platform.  This one is different because it is like a notice bulletin board.  I have used this in my classroom as a place for students to respond to a writing prompt.  They can read what other students have written and respond to those as well.  URLs and videos can be added to posts.
