Wishing Walls

Have you ever wondered what lies beyond a wall?

WallWisher is a cool tool that has been around since 2009. There are endless tasks and activities that both students and teachers can use WallWisher for. By clicking here, you will see just how easy and simple it is to create a wall.  Tom Barret has shared a collection of great uses for WallWisher on Scribd, and I am sure that you will find even more ways of using WallWisher creatively. Jeri Lang, for instance, suggests using WallWisher to share our favourite season or brainstorm ideas in preparation for a writing task. 

Make a wish - make a wall! 

Video art has become so popular today, that the  Guggenheim Foundation  has established awards for the many creative videos that are made around the world.

In celebration of the award winning video clips,  as well as of the creativty that we enjoy on a daily basis when browsing through You Tube and other video sites, I have created a wall to share with you.

All you need to do is click, create a sticky note, include your name, copy and paste your favourite video clip and remember to tell us why you chose it!

Are you ready to break down walls and discover what lies beyond the brick wall? Let's begin by sharing our favourite video clip!


  1. Hi Cristina,
    Actually, I was using the Fall season in RAK as a topic to show students how to use Wallwisher as a brainstorming tool since our students have a difficult time grasping the concept of brainstorming as pre-writing strategy.

  2. Hi Jeri,

    Another way that I have WallWisher is as a notice board where I have set up assignments for students, with text, video and audio recordings. Students can then check the wall and carry out the tasks in their own time and space. I remember one particular group of students who wanted nothing else but walls! :-)
