A site maintained by teachers for teachers
Twiddla is a free online canvas space where multiple users may join and collaborate on the same page. No login or registration is required for the use of this resource. Twiddla may come in very useful when there is group work to be done. This is because the students do not need to be sitting near each other to work together. They may be spread around the class, each on his or her own computer. This would mean that there is less time wasted by the students moving around the class.
The most beneficial feature of Twiddla is that the user just needs to go on the website and join the room. After this the students may start collaborating immediately with his or her group. Also since everyone is seeing the work in front of them, no one would be left out because they are all looking at the same thing. Another benefit is that everyone has a copy of the work done and not only one person has a paper which is the work of the whole group.
I think that Twiddla may be of use when any type of group activity is being done, even for storing simple notes to share with the others.
