Post It with Wallwisher

Recently I was contemplating how to get my students to creatively respond to their novels.  Wallwisher was the answer.  Wallwisher is a program which allows its users to place "sticky notes" on a virtual bulletin board.  Within each sticky note the students are able to write 160 characters and paste a link, an image, video, or audio file.  How effective is it?  Within the last two weeks, my sixth grade class has posted forty notes on our board! Those who teach tweens know how difficult it can be to squeeze participation out of them.  Here is a great site that provides Twenty Nine Ways to Use Wallwisher in the Classroom
