Student Collaboration with Miro
Presentation abstract
After more than a year of experimenting with new tools in online lessons, educators should reflect on what tools can be used to reimagine post-COVID classes. In this session, the presenter will introduce one new tool - a free collaborative web-based whiteboard tool called Miro that can be used synchronously or asynchronously. Similar to the graphic tools found in other whiteboards and presentation features found in Prezi, Miro's tools can add text, shapes, sticky notes, documents, images, pdfs, videos, and URLs. However, Miro also offers several unique features that are especially useful for language learners such as templates for mind mapping, brainstorming, dot voting, Kanban workflows, Likert scales, ice breakers, and reflections. Teachers can make use of a timer, voting, presentation mode, real-time video chat, comments, board annotations, and reactions (similar to Zoom’s emoticons for raising hands, thumbs up, applause). Everyone can see changes on the board in real-time. The possibilities appear to be endless as content expands in the Miro board. This presentation will include a brief introduction to Miro and some language classroom examples promoting collaboration (e.g., self-introductions, group writing/telling a story, sorting/matching information, documenting a project). The presentation will end with benefits and limitations.
