You may already know there are many online sticky note tools out there.  Lino is a free online sticky note service that allows your students (and you!) to post text, images, videos, and file attachments on an online "cork board."

From makeuseof:
  • Create sticky notes and use them to manage to-do lists, store notes and collaborate on ideas.
  • Group stickies into different canvases/tabs (work, personal, etc.) and use tags to organize them further.
  • Create as many canvases and sticky notes as you need.
  • Keep your sticky notes private or share and collaborate on notes with others.
  • You can share notes with others on ‘view only’ or ‘view & edit’ basis.
  • Assign due dates and setup automatic email alerts.
  • Calendar: Use the mini-calendar on the right-bottom of the canvas to browse stickies by due date.
  • Customize stickies: change background color, change font size, assign icons, drag and drop, etc.
Students can quickly go online to post ideas about a lesson or reading--either before, during or after.

As teachers, it can serve as an ongoing "parking lot" for concerns or questions during or after professional development sessions, and even ongoing in the grade level.  Individually, it can serve as a personal/professional to do list.

Quick thought - after students post ideas or reflections, ask a student to come to the SMARTBoard to sort and categorize the notes!  It's a quick and easy way to promote those critical thinking skills.

And yes--there's an app for that.
