    Hi all!
    My Colleague Jess invited me to this website and I thought I would try the challenge (albeit a little late!)
    Jess and I have been working together in undertaking a lot of PD on Critical and Creative thinking, as well as completing the Harvard Making Thinking Visible online course as well, thus this is an excellent way to really ‘make thinking visible’. We are also very passionate about using technology in the classroom in a productive and constructive way.

    I have 2 working walls started – one digital and one physical.

    Livability: (physical) We have been studying the concept of livability in humanities and are about 1/2 way through this unit. We have completed see-think-wonder’s, connect extend, challenges and many other thinking routines on this topic.

    Digital Wellbeing: (online) In our pastoral care program we have been investigating the concept of wellbeing, including ‘downtime’, looking after yourself, and also ‘digital wellbeing’. I am using a program called ‘linoit’ – I’ve never used it before, but it is similar in the way of padlet. I will be trialing it today, so hopefully it works!

    OK So here is a screen shot of the Digital Wellbeing Online Workingboard – I’m using linoit – the kids found it easy to use and enjoyed it. You can add images, videos, and documents etc as well!

      I’ve never heard of linoit before but I’m keen to give it a go. It looks like something year 6/7 students would love. It looks a little like padlet? You’ve just inspired me to share the padlet/website my class are building for our Ancient India investigation.

    And here is the start of my ‘Livability’ Working board – the physical version! Again, I am teaming this with some thinking routines. I’m beginning to think, if only I had more board space, I could have a working board for every subject!
