One of our blogging teachers asked me a question about adding linoit to their blog. This is very similar to padlet (used to be called wallwisher) So I tried to create a linoit to add to this blog. Your students might like to add a sticky to the wall.

 

To add a sticky
  1. Hover over the heading Blogging Info next to Miss W’s avatar.
  2. Choose a coloured sticky.
  3. Type your answer on the sticky and save.
  4. If you need to edit later, click the pencil icon (first icon on sticky)
  5. Spread the stickies out so they can all be read by clicking on the linoit canvas.
To add linoit to your blog – need to sign up for free
  1. Write the rest of your blog post in your dashboard.
  2. Go to linoit in a new tab and create a new canvas to add the main task you want students to answer.
  3. Top right corner, click the information icon.
  4. This opens your embedding choices – click on the last choice – embed
  5. Copy the code.
  6. Back to your blog post dashboard.
  7. Press enter to start on a new line then click on the HTML or text tab on top right
  8. Paste in the code you have copied.
  9. Save draft and preview in a new tab.
  10. If it looks great then publish.
  11. If the linoit board is too big for the blog theme, go back to your post dashboard and still in HTML tab, change the width to about 480 pixels.
  12. Save again and update the post.

NB In the free version there will be ads visible on the linoit.

How could you use a linoit in your classroom?
