A Whimsical Little Tool

All-in-one tech tools are so helpful when you want to add choice into your classroom but not have to use a million different websites. This week, we have a tool that allows flexibility and organization all in one place! Whimsical.com gives you a workspace that has a large variety of tools where you can lay out ideas, collaborate and share with others.

With Whimsical, you can combine sticky-note-type organization with mind mapping and/or flow charts. If you are looking for an alternative to Padlet or want to combine organizational formats, Whimsical is very helpful. There are fewer decorative elements than some similar tools, but you are still able to add images, files and links into your workspace. It is also flexible and gives you control over how much your collaborators can or cannot add. You can even lock portions of your workspace into place so that only certain pieces can be edited.

Whimsical is a great tool for educators to share with students to create idea boards, plot step-by-step processes, plan projects, share their thinking and so much more. It can be used with pretty much every content area. There is a premium version if you plan on adding more than 3,000 items to your workspace or adding a lot of collaborators.

So start sharing ideas and planning projects! Have a great week! 🤗
