Titanpad Teacher Reviews
“TitanPad has many possibilities for classroom use. Teachers could use it to quickly brainstorm with students, model note-taking, or create check lists for projects. Teachers could start the process and small groups could finish it. Students may use TitanPad to create their own check lists for group work or work they do together on a project. Students and teachers may write, edit, and revise together. For example, students could create study guides together.” – North Carolina State Board of Education
“Titanpad is a platform that has a note-taking component on one side and a chat option on the other. The note-taking side syncs constantly so multiple users can add their information. It reminded me a little of one-note but with the ability to chat. The owner of the “pads” as the program calls them can keep them in an archive to refer to later. The pads have security options, the ability to import and export the notes and the capability to save revisions.” – Jennifer Wells
“TitanPad is more like a Word document that multiple people can work in it at the same time. As one person types, their edits appear instantly in the document, identified by a different color. This type of backchannel tool would be more appropriate for a group writing exercise or brainstorming session. All participants are identified by names and the document will stay on-line indefinitely. No need for accounts or setup, just a link. It’s a good “spur of the moment” tool.” – Avi Spector
