How I Use It
I like to use Lino for warm up activities and exit tickets. I also like it as a way to reinforce learning after a mini-lesson. Students can add a variety of content to the Lino canvas (i.e. images, video links, attachments) and they can even add comments with sticky notes. The different color stickies make it an ideal tool for also categorizing or grouping information when using it for direct instruction. It also helps because you can add multimedia content and transition through different activities without skipping a beat! Students don't have to log in to add sticky notes or content and you can make the canvas private if you want.
My Take
Lino is a great tool to have in your toolbox! It's a great way to engage all students and get feedback. Students like the variety of media content that can be posted on Lino. The colors help them to organize content in meaningful ways. I like that I can put all my lesson resources on a Lino canvas and maintain the attention of my students. Students like participating in this virtual space and seeing all the different responses posted on the canvas! Be sure to communicate expectations for communicating on this virtual space before they use this app.
