Thursday’s Tip: Wallwisher in Science

Wallwisher: What do we want to learn about the Winter Olympic Sports?

This past school year, I used a great free website with my students to practice their skills with experimental design. On Wallwisher you can post a guiding question and have students responses appear as sticky notes across the “wall.”

For example, I posted an experimental question such as “How does the salinity of water affect the rate of evaporation?” Students used Wallwisher in pairs or individually to post their hypotheses to this question. They can even embed video or images into their posts. I think it’s a great online tool with lots of possible uses in the classroom!
