How I Use It
Uses for Lino in the classroom:
◦Students post their research on shared topics
◦Teachers share a bank of images or links for students to use in a project
◦Teachers share student work that has been uploaded
◦Students post their learning at the end of each unit and then review at the end of the year
◦Using Lino, teachers post a background image, like a venn diagram, and have students organize thinking or label an image in another language
Padlet and Lino are two of my favorite sticky note apps to foster collaboration and create a snapshot of learning in the classroom. They are both web 2.0 tools that do NOT require an account or login, which makes them very student-friendly. Lino allows you to upload a background image that notes can be stuck to like a venn dagram or an image to label, and you can color code notes. Both are accessible through any web-enabled device, laptop, ipad, ipod, notebook or Chromebook, and of course, they are FREE.
