linoit.com is a virtual pin-board that can be used in a huge number of ways.
It is free to register and very simple to use.
How can you use it?
1. Pin up all of the resources you want students to have access to during your lesson (instructions, word documents, images, video clips) – huge benefits for independent learning activities here.
2. Use as a homework – every student has to contribute something to the pin-board (this can obviously be done as a lesson activity too).
3. Divide the class into groups each with their own pin-board for collaborative project work.
4. Use as a department/class noticeboard – Clevedon school (Jim Smith’s school) use it for a whole-school noticeboard – see it here.
