Baiboard 3

Baiboard 3

Thanks to the Digital Learning Team at The City of Edinburgh, I have been introduced to a great collaboration whiteboard app which can be used across the curriculum.

Baiboard 3, available for free on the app store, is designed to allow learners to ‘visualize, create and collaborate’ using tablet devices. Here is an example of a Baiboard I created today:

Once pupils have entered your ‘Meet’ code in the app, they will be able to contribute to questions posed by the teacher.

Other uses could be pupils photographing their work and sharing it on the Baiboard shown on the board with the rest of the class or as assessment tool when asking for pupil feedback,

Duck Duck Moose apps encourage children to explore and learn in a safe and fun environment. There are 22 educational apps available from the app store, free of charge, which enable children to consolidate their learning across the curriculum and develop their imagination and creativity.
