Corkboard.me - An alternative to WallWisher. Your own digital corkboard where you and your students can share quick notes, links, & pictures.

I thought of posting this after a conversation we had over on Classroom20.com.  A teacher was looking for an alternative to WallWisher, a popular Web2.0 tool where you can post a question or comment, and have students add "notes" with their own comments.  WallWisher still has many technical issues and sometimes is blocked by school Internet filters.  I personally love WallWisher, however, I do have issues where it will not load properly or comments do not appear.  You can check out WallWisher for yourself at http://www.wallwisher.com/

Corkboard.me is a nice alternative to WallWisher.  It is totally free, you dont have to sign up to use it, and you create your corkboard just by opening the site.  When you visit Corkboard.me, simply copy the URL in your web browser and share it with your friends.   They can then add their own notes, links, and images.  Corkboards have a near limitless size so they should fit nearly any classroom need. 

This is a great resource for checking for understanding in your class, a quick 60 bell ringer to have students voice opinions on a prompt or topic, allowing students to ask questions about a lesson, and much more!


Check it out!
