There are a few great tutorials, which are often good reminders for both you and students. If you find other great videos related to these tools, please let me know...I would love to add them to this resource!

Post-It Plus

Post-it Plus is a great app that allows you to capture sticky notes and maneuver, sort, arrange them, and then share them out. This is a great tool for collaborative thinking!

Some ideas for use:

  • Vocabulary--arrange words with similar meanings, roots, sounds
  • Math-- ways to make 10, similar factors, divisibility rules
  • Ideas--have individual students write ideas on a topic and then arrange them by main idea (ie: what does a good classroom look/sound like--->grouped into respect, work ethic, etc)
  • Brainstorming!
  • Sequence--parts of a story, numbers, events (ie: water cycle)
  • WTW--once the student's words are cut apart they can capture them as post-its and move them around the screen. If the reader does not pick up a word, it should allow you to "select" it and make it into a post-it by dragging the box around it.
