The technology works best when we use it to collaborate and derive better learning from a platform created for good use. Beyond the JamBoard or Padlet, we have found a cool place to 'JAM' with our ideas and them bring them in a document to see the responses as well as the rewards. Ideaboardz is what we are introducing to you.
One fine day, my mentor, Dr Ramesh C Sharma dropped this link in the WhatsApp chat and said 'try this'. His twin words message 'TRY THIS' has always been a wonderful key to open newness in learning. This proved no wrong. I have not used much of Padlet or Jamboard by Google, but the moment I saw the IdeaBoardz interface, it somehow gave me the temptation to give it a try. I did and the rest is what this blog stands for! SHARE it WITH the WORLD of Teachers!
The collaboration which happens on this platform is varied and vast. Apart from making sections and sharing them with the users, we can see the results with votes given to each input and also generate the PDF or Excel Sheet for our follow-ups.
What is IdeaBoardz?
IdeaBoardz is a team collaboration tool. It allows teams to collectively brainstorm, gather inputs, reflect and retrospect. It is especially useful for teams that are distributed geographically. It is also handy for teams to collect inputs over some days and then meet to discuss them.
What do people use it for?
Most teams use IdeaBoardz to conduct Project Retrospective meetings. We know of teams who have used it for other types of brainstorming exercises like six thinking hats, pros-cons, risks-opportunities. We ourselves are using it to gather feedback and new ideas for IdeaBoardz.
PDF and ExcelSheets are generated/Exported for the Results.
