How I Use It
We have used this tool to create a Word Wall that included definitions, hand-drawn or imported image examples, and videos to illustrate the term. There are many other templates available, like Essay Outlines and Seed Discussions. The tool is simple to use and gives students many ways to express their ideas. They can work together in the same Storm and can even vote on each others' posts. I also love that you can create a color-coded key that allows for a very organized Storm.
My Take
I love this tool because of its endless possibilities, its ease of use, and the fact that the educator account is robust and free! I would highly recommend secondary teachers trying it out.
