Do you enjoy sharing ideas with your colleagues? Are your students collaborating and brainstorming online? Online sticky notes may be just what you need.
Lino is a free tool that allows you to create online sticky note boards. It's great for personal use, to use as a way to keep track of all of your ideas and notes. You can also create collaborative experiences by sharing boards and opening them up for others to contribute to.
One benefit of taking your sticky notes online is you can pin multiple types of media to your boards. You're not limited to solely stickies — you can pin videos, photos, audio clips, and more. The freedom to contribute many types of media keeps the creativity flowing when you're in a brainstorming session.
Want to learn more about free tools like Lino? I recommend taking a look at this virtual training video, Brainstorm and Share Using Online Sticky Notes. Experienced tech trainer Kim Munoz shares how to effectively post online sticky notes on Wallwisher, Lino, and Scrumblr. See how these sites differ and learn to set up a board to use in your classroom to share ideas, gather feedback, or brainstorm for a project.
