Ryeboard is a virtual whiteboard for desktop computers. This tool currently includes options for adding images, text, and drawings using the widgets on the menu. Choose any option and drag it onto the whiteboard surface. Follow the prompts to add information. Grab the corner on your entries to resize or move around to a different spot on the whiteboard space. Ryeboard also includes a basic photo editor to rotate and crop images. Whiteboards automatically save to your account, turn on the sharing option to copy the URL and share with others.

tag(s): iwb (33), organizational skills (122)

In the Classroom

Ryeboard is perfect for those times that you need to organize information and ideas in one place, but you don't need a lot of fancy options. Use this tool to save and organize images for use with class digital projects. Create a whiteboard with an image of each student in your class, add a text box with notes then share with a substitute to have a quick overview of the class. Ryboard is easy enough to use with younger students and ESL/ELL students. Create a board with images and have students use the text box to label the images and add additional information. For example, when studying animals upload several images of animals and have students add a text box naming the animal and sharing information about their habitat or adding a label to classify as birds, mammals, reptiles, etc.

In the Classroom

Create a Boardthing board to collaborate on collecting ideas, brainstorming, and more. Use this tool easily in your Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) classroom since all students will be able to access it for free, no matter what device they have. Boardthing does not show which work is attributable to which student, so you may want to require that students initial their contributions to get credit. If allowing all students to post to the board or make comments, you may want to discuss Internet safety and etiquette and establish specific class rules and consequences. Challenge students to create a BoardThing to display pictures and videos of their research project, science fair projects, steps to how they resolved a math equation, etc. Free accounts after the trial period allow users five new boards usable only by the board creator.
