An Interactive Board for Collaboration


Regardless of how one perceives collaboration and cooperation, asking students to work in pairs or in small groups on mini projects or classroom tasks, is quite common practice. Often, however, learners will have to continue working together outside the classroom and resort to digital tools to communication and complete their tasks. 

Boardthing is an interesting tool to use for teams and small groups. 

Boardthing includes sticky notes, a whiteboard, markers, and index cards, and with its drag and drop features, is really simple to use. 




Team work and cooperation are not always simple, straight forward processes.

Guiding students with tools which may help them collaborate, take ownership of their projects together, a space where they  can share their visions and ideas, is a step towards preparing them for life outside the classroom.  When using a visual board which allows them to share and connect ideas, to brainstorm and communicate, they are developing team work skills which are necessary for their futures.

And, who knows what creative outcomes may occur in a visual, interactive whiteboard?
