So how do we use the Wallwisher application with students?  I love the idea of a virtual  “question wall”. Wallwisher has oodles of uses in the classroom.

Here is a link to a helpful Edublogger post by Sue Waters on  Spicing Up Your Posts: Part II Wallwisher.  Scroll down to “Here’s examples how you can use with students” where you will find a how-to video, Tom  Barrett’s slide show- “Nineteen  Interesting Ways to Use Wallwisher in the Classroom” and links to a couple of great classroom blogs with more examples of Wallwisher.

Here is Tom’s Scribd slide show.

19 Interesting Ways to Use Wallwisher…

Wallwisher is simple to add to a post. Just follow the Edublogger directions.  Even so, I am passing a tip along.  Once published, it is a good idea not to go back and forth between VISUAL and HTML to re-edit as the link breaks.  Then the entire “wall” slips back into your email and needs to be re-embedded. Just leave it in HTML forever.

I am a consummate tinkerer and very “visual”; I determined the Wallwisher post on our blog needed several small tweaks in VISUAL after I published it.   On the positive side, each time  I re-edited the post in “VISUAL”, the wall “slipped” and provided me with yet another “opportunity” to practice re-embedding the Wallwisher.   We are all learners here.

Let me know if you would like some help placing Wallwisher on a post.  Just don’t let me tinker with your post after it is published:)
