Every Friday, I’ll send you a wonderful website (or more) that my classes and my parents love. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of your students as they are of mine.
Teachers, for all ages
A Web Whiteboard is simple, straight-forward, no ads or clutter. It starts with an easy-to-find start button. When you push it, you get a full-screen, rudimentary white board that you can draw on. All you get is a couple pens, a couple colors, and the ability to erase or save. But, you can invite others to join the communication and you can post the completed drawing to FB, Reddit, and Twitter. I’d like html so I can add it to my wiki page, but NP–I’ll simply take a screen shot.
I can see lots of possibilities for this website. I can keep it up on my taskbar, invoke it to draw for students, then toggle back to whatever other program I’m using. I’d like a typing function, but maybe they’re looking into that.
They allow anyone to paste this function into their own website with two bits of code. I haven’t tried it yet–not sure it’ll work in WP.COM. Anyone have experience in this?
