Educational Tools - Linoit

Linoit is a digital sticky note website where users can post memos, create list, share photos and more. Users can collaborate with others in real time and immediately read their submitted post. In this post, I will provide four ways to use Linoit to enhance classroom instruction.

Back channel

Linoit is a great resource to use as a back channel/digital parking lot for students or participants of a professional development workshop. For example, teachers may use a canvas page for students to post understandings, questions, thoughts, etc. during direct instruction. This allows the instructor to continue with instruction and during a stopping point address any stickies posted either through class discourse and/or projecting the linoit canvas. Additionally, in meetings or workshops, this is a great resource to use as a digital parking lot for questions or comments.

Collaborative space

Linoit is also a great place to collaborate and share responses. During a professional development workshop, I wanted to provide an opportunity for participants to individually post responses about the instructional implications of STEM and project-based learning. The image provides an example of their responses.

As you can see participants have the capability of reading other’s responses as well. Participants were asked to read the responses of their peers and choose one that resonated with them to discuss whole group.

Digital lesson

Linoit can also be utilized to create a digital lesson. Teachers can use the canvas and provide instructions, instructional resources, like videos and files, and post task or assessments for students to interact with digitally. An entire daily agenda along with accompanying resources can be posted for students to access and use to facilitate learning. Additionally, students can respond, ask questions, and post their thoughts digitally for review and discussion.
