Post your ideas about how Wallwisher could be used to support/extend instruction, add functionality to e-Rooms, and more.



Wallwisher in Education:

  1. Embed a wall on your e-Room so students can post questions or comments easily.
  2. Ask a thought-provoking question in class and have students respond via the wall.
  3. Use the wall to collaborate with students in other classes, cities, or countries.
  4. You could use wallwisher to do a weekly poll or weekly answer. Students can record their answer to the weekly question on the wall for the teacher and other students to see. - Kelsey Nelson
  5. One idea for wallwisher is to use it as a "bulletin board." In many of the units I saw being taught, teachers had a concept board for students to post questions and/or comments. Wallwisher would be a great way for students to post questions and/or comments to the concept board from home. Depending on the class I feel like the engagement would be higher because student could contribute to it outside of the regular classroom hours. - Katie
  6. An idea I had for using wall wisher in an elementary classroom was using it for book clubs. If you had different book clubs in a classroom each book group could have their own wall to write questions or comments that they want to discuss in their book groups. Another idea is have students post on the wall before the school year starts to help you get to know students and to help them get to know each other. They could write a sticky note about topics they want to read about/ or things they really want to learn more about throughout the year. - Julia Loewinger
  7. Wallwisher [could be used] for collaborative work, like we did, where groups or individuals are sharing out on a topic. Could be used between classrooms or around the world for that type of work. If there were a time stamp, I wonder if this could be used to create a queue of students waiting for the teacher's (or student experts') attention during independent work times. Our 1st graders posted the "area" of their feet during a math lesson; they could have used Wallwisher instead of physical post-its, and the "wall" could have been displayed on the SmartBoard for all to see. - Tanya
  8. I find that some students have ideas or answers to questions asked by the teacher about subject matter or even personal responses, but sometimes feelings can get in the way of participation. The quiet student, insecure student, the "think outside of the box' student, ect. may be reluctant to respond in front of peers. - Carrie Clancy
  9. Wallwisher could be an easy way for students to ask questions over several days before starting a new subject/topic- creating an interactive KWL chart with the wallwisher being used for the K part of the chart. - Marcia Moore
  10. Wall wisher ideas: Discussion board for posting comments or questions; For creating classroom rules - groups or pairs of students can add their own rules to the board; For warm up to vocabulary - in groups students guess what the word means and post their definition, then as a class we look at all of them and narrow it down by combining or eliminating to find the best definition; To show how groups are organized. - Justine
