Question & Answer Computer Center

Have you ever used Wallwisher? It makes a great computer center.  This website is basically a wallwishervirtual interactive bulletin board, where different people can collaborate to join their ideas together by adding a “sticky note” to the wall.  You can also add pictures, and videos to your sticky notes.  It’s a great way to get kids collaborating, but it’s also an easy way to collect information from your students in a computer center.  Here are some ways you can use Wallwisher in your centers:

1.)  Put a challenge up on your wall for students to complete when they come to the computer center.  For example:  Write a silly sentence using two or three of your spelling words.

2.)  Assign your students a video (by adding the link to your post on the wall).  After students have watched the video – they can answer a question about the video, tell you their favorite part, or even leave you a question about something they didn’t understand.

3.) Combine two great sites to make a dynamic listening center – Add the video links from to a post.  Let students listen to the story and then “summarize” the story in 160 characters or less (160 characters is the limit for each sticky note).

4.)  Do Math Problem Solving in Reverse.  Post a number sentence (2x5=10) to your question.  Have students each add a sticky note with a self-created word problem that could use the number sentence.
