Making It Legit: Twidla


Prologue

So, because I can’t sleep…I’m blogging.

My middle kid…sigh…will be going to kindergarten tomorrow and I’m super happy about it even though it means I’m that much closer to death.

Regular-logue

My new peeps (that should be followed on twitter, bee-tee-dub), Tracie “Cyber-Sass” Cain (@TracieGCain), Linda “Mc-Dominate” McDonald (@LindaMac65), and Erin “Cheeky Monkey” Griffith (@MrsGriffith3), have shown me a billion new things in the tech world that have helped me organize everything from short presentations to my entire life.

Recently, though, I saw something they used during a presentation that blew my mind more than normal.

twiddla-logoTwidla is an online resources that allows for collaborative online illustrations.  There is no logging in, no account sign up, and no-thing to slow you down on the highway to awesomeness.

However, you CAN upload and mark up images, files, and play on a white board.  Every stray line and color is updated in real time which means classroom collaboration with students around the planet or universe…or…classroom is possible!

To Begin

On the home page, click the green button and start “Twidla”ing.  Share you link with those you love.  Then chat with them in the chat area on the right side of the screen.

If you don’t like the three thousand digit code the site creates as your identification number, then just double click on it in the chat area and change your name!  Then chat again… with your name this time.

It really is a super easy resource to use so watch my video and then jump in as hard as yuo can.  Then share how you think you can use it with your kids and parents so I can steal those ideas.
