What are Symbaloo Lesson Plans?

Most of us are familiar with the Symbaloo Visual Book Marking! The appearance is somewhat the same however you can now add objectives and sequence activities. Ultimately, you are creating a game-style lesson for students. Feel free to contact me if this is interesting to you and you want to know more about it.

What is Dotstorming?

Dotstorming is a neat tool that combines a bit of Padlet with a polling tool. On Dotstorming you can create a space for people to post digital sticky notes. Those notes can contain text and or images. That part of Dotstorming is just like Padlet. What makes Dotstorming different is that once the notes are posted, you can have people vote for their favorite notes. As the creator of a Dotstorming space you can restrict the number of votes that each person can cast. For example, you could say that each person gets two votes and once those votes are cast they’re prevented from casting any more votes. After the voting is completed, you can sort the notes according to the number of votes they received. (http://practicaledtech.com/2016/01/24/dotstorming-collaborative-brainstorming/)
