Have you heard about Limnu yet? If not, you are going to be happy you choose to read this post. Limnu is an interactive, online white board that allows teams to collaborate and brainstorm ideas in real-time and from multi locations through drawings, inserted images, and typed text. From corporate offices, design firms, to classrooms, Limnu can help teams of all kinds with their creative process. Sound intriguing?
Since this is a blog for teachers, I am going to keep the focus on ways Limnu can help in the classroom. (If you are not a teacher keep reading. It might help you with work or you might just want to try it out at home and use it with your family and friends.)
Lets begin with a common scenario all classroom teachers face at some point in time. You (the teacher) have been feverishly preparing your students for a final exam and you get the flu. You never get sick and therefore never had to worry about your lesson plans and notes making sense to anyone but yourself. The impending task of translating your unique and brilliant test prep notes and drawings to your substitute is making you feel even worse. You were ready to tough it out the next day until you learned about Limnu. Now while in bed, working from your tablet, you created a visual test prep roadmap with drawings, text, and notes in real-time while your substitute followed along on their tablet. When your substitute had a question, they simply wrote it on their screen and you replied from yours. In less than an hour your substitute was ready for their mission and you, relieved from anxiety, were able to sleep.
Limnu has so many potential uses in the classroom. You can invite a guest teacher from another state or country to teach a lesson without having to step foot into your school. Your students can collaborate with students in another country to promote a global connection and learn about other cultures. Art students can share drawings and create character ideas for a comic book and so much more. The potential for real learning and for real fun is limitless with Limnu. You might be asking yourself “how much does this service cost?”
