Dotstorming was one of the most popular new tools that I demonstrated last weekend at the Colonial Tech Conference. It is a great platform for hosting online brainstorming sessions in which participants vote for and discuss their favorite ideas. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how it works.
Applications for Education
One of the ways that you could use Dotstorming is to post set of answer choices for your students and have them vote for the answer that they think is correct.
Dotstorming could be a helpful tool in planning Edcamp schedules. Have folks post their session titles and short descriptions then give everyone a few votes to determine which sessions will be held.
