Friday Resource Review – Trello

Trello is a free whiteboardlike service that I’ve been using for a few months now. I use it to share resources with other teachers, co-ordinate the topics and questions for #saskedchat and outline my presentations. It has helped me with creating a workflow for each of these plus organize ideas for papers and classroom presentations. I can access these from any of my devices. The free version allows me to share my boards with others or keep them private as I work on them.

I’ve created a screencast of some of the features that I think make it a great tool for sharing with a team or organizing items for a group, using with students for planning and working on a project or sharing items with students, such as homework, assignments, due dates, and classroom news. It can be used by schools to share items with parents or it as a staff area for sharing information about upcoming events or brainstorming ideas for PD. I’ll also show how I have used one of the boards to share resources with teachers and for organizing a presentation I did recently.


If you are interested, Trello has a great offer when you recommend others. Remember this is a free site but there are additional options that you can access through purchase.
