What is it?

Collaborative notes enable teachers and students to work together and share knowledge online while working alone or in small groups. Students and teachers can add content to an online wall/canvas.

What is the value?

Visual input such as text, images, links and videos created by small groups can be put into a larger setting with many groups by sharing and collaborating using online notes. You can use the notes for students’ contributions through group work, feedback on reading, their own comments, open brainstorms, etc.

Didactic Tips

Use online notes for student collaboration and knowledge sharing in class or to document group work and follow up on it in class. The notes entered online are available to everybody and can be discussed, reconstructed or agreed upon and saved for further reference.

Which Software Should I choose?

Most of the tools for online notes are easy to use and free of charge. Usually you won’t need help to start using them.

Start using padlet for computers here: www.padlet.com or download it on the App Store (only available for iPads).
