Let’s take a quick look at 5 web 2.0 sticky note sites perfect for project-based learning and technology integration. These websites are great for teacher use such as a classroom homepage and student use for various projects.
Stixy is an online bulletin board on which you can add stickies, images, documents and calendar dates. This site works great as a classroom homepage; you can add “to do” notes on the board which are added to the calendar.
Stormboard (formerly Edistorm) is an online bulletin board that is perfect for developing writing projects. Students can brainstorm, collaborate and organize their thoughts. Add video, images and more! Students can even vote for the most important stickies, hide the rest and export their board as an Excel spreadsheet.
Twiddla is a very powerful online whiteboard that includes sticky notes, text, images and drawing tools. A chat feature is also included, excellent for students collaborating on a project for homework.
Formerly known as Wallwisher, Padlet is a simple, efficient online bulletin board. This site has an easy to use interface perfect for younger students. Create a wall then double click to add a sticky note. You can also add images, audio and video links.
Bonus: A site very similar to Wallwisher is Corkboard.me
One of the best online bulletin board experiences can be found at Linoit. Set your background to look like a cork board or even use a picture. Then add stickies (with or without due dates), images, videos, documents and even private notes that are viewable by only you. Linoit is excellent as a homepage for your class as well as student projects.
