Advantages: Lino-it & Wallwisher - lino wins

Advantages: Lino-it & Wallwisher - lino:

Having spent twenty minutes playing with Lino-it I'm convinced it is a better sticky note tool.  However the two main disadvantages are:

  1. It takes a little longer to get used to Lino-it than Wallwisher
  2. It has a sticky note Google ad on every canvas.
Otherwise I'm pretty positive that I can use this in lessons with students for all of the following:
  • Brainstorming previous knowledge
  • Collating information / images / videos on a topic
  • Collaborative project work
  • Getting students to respond to a text or a graph or a video.
  • Book Reviews - Vocabulary exercises
  • Collecting Web-links
  • Plenary activities

In fact all of the things I suggested Wallwisher might be used for on this Wallwisher wall

Here is a Lino "Canvas" I made in 20 minutes...

 Lino-it would be a nice notice board for a project which lasted a few lessons.
The ability post sticky notes with attachements of files and to set due dates seems pretty useful.
