Who doesn’t love a post-it note? For a time at my school it seemed that no meeting was complete without ideas being captured on post-its and stuck to a whiteboard. It’s a great way of getting a snapshot view of people’s knowledge, a method I have also used with children in class. The problem is, once the activity is complete the ideas are generally lost and there is nothing to record the moment. That might not be important for a staff meeting, however for showing progress between the beginning and end of a lesson or topic it certainly is.
That’s where Post-it plus comes in. You simply take a photo of a group of post-it notes, the app will recognise, crop and resize them and organise them into a neat grid which you can save as a single picture – the example below is from a year 3 e-safety session. Simple, effective and a great source of evidence.
