General
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
My Take
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.
