Scrumblr – great free online tool for teachers

[From the Teaching Generation Now newsletter]

Scrumblr is a free online tool that allows you to create a virtual whiteboard. This whiteboard can be accessed from multiple computers and used as a collaborative space for education.
We like scrumblr because:
? it is free and extremely easy to use.
? no sign up is needed to create and collaborate on a scrumblr board
? only people with the URL link that you create can access the scrumblr.
? it has no ads.
? it provides the opportunity for students to be active in their learning, reflect, clarify, stay focussed and learn from one another.
? it lets participants be anonymous.
