Looking for Student Input Use Wallwisher

Over the past year I have incorporated more student advice in the development of course work. One of the ways that I have done this is to ask for ideas and thoughts from students. I have used forums, blogs and wiki’s to attain information from students in the past about upcoming topics and assignments. Lately, I have found a simple and effective way to get student comments that students seem to enjoy called “Wallwisher”. Wallwisher is a simple virtual post it board where students can easily leave their idea or thought on a bulletin board for others to see and read. It is simple fast and my students seem to really enjoy this web tool. I have used this to get help from students in creating assignments and creating grading rubrics. The level and quality of students response has been very interesting. The rubrics and assignments that they help to create are often more complex and involved than the ones I had created previously. “Wallwisher” is a great tool to get this type of information from students quickly and is fun for them in the process.
