Sticky notes always work well in face-to-face workshops so this online version looks good. Up to 5 collaborators with the free plan - notes can then be saved as a PDF

Barbara Goebel's curator insight, July 7, 10:05 PM

The interface seems a little buggy, but the possibilities are broad. Can't get an invitation email to load, some sticky windows become unresponsive. Hope for fixes, so we can try this for teaching team collaboration, if nothing else.

The Rice Process's curator insight, June 1, 5:58 AM

 Structure shapes behavior. Teachers should design the space to support learning in a flexible yet organized environment. Classrooms designs are shifting from being teacher-focused to a focus on active learning. The teacher is charged with motivating, exciting and encouraging their students to be engaged in a lesson or activity.  

Scott Holcomb's curator insight, June 2, 12:21 PM

I totally agree!!!
