Use the Post-it® App to capture these words into a new Post-it® App Board. No longer are these words only on written on paper but now captured into the digital world.

  • 3. Doing schoolwork with kanban

    A kanban board is a great way for your family to help at home students organize tasks, manage assignments, and chart their progress, while the Post-it® App helps continue learning momentum by sharing with your group across a variety of platforms.

    Here’s how - you’ll need a smooth surface to begin, perhaps a wall, a variety of Post-it® Super Sticky Notes and a student with assignments to complete. Next you will need to create columns by evenly spacing larger Post-it® Super Sticky Notes of the same color across the top of your kanban, labeled “To-Do”, “Doing”, and “Done”. On the left side, write student’s name on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note and add to a row. Add as many rows as students in your household. Next, add different color notes for assignments and tasks under the “To Do” column.

    Review the board with your student and start the at home school day. As assignments are in-progress, move the Notes to the next column until you’ve completed all the tasks. If desired, capture the Post-it® Super Sticky Notes in the Post-it® App, and track them in a digital kanban board. Either way, the Post-it® App allows you to share them with your teacher. Simply export to PowerPoint®, Dropbox, Trello®, then share with your teacher.

  • 4. Research the right way

    Knowing how to research the right way is integral to your students’ successes in the classroom. By writing down facts on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note, your student’s memory will be triggered when quizzed. This easy learning activity is a great tool to help at home K-12 students be prepared for English, History, Math, Biology, and more.

    Select a few topics for your students to research, write each topic on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note and arrange at the middle to top part of a wall. Ask your student to research each topic, have them write down 5-10 keywords and facts they’ve learned, each on individual Post-it® Super Sticky Notes. Arrange the new facts on the wall and, after the lesson, capture the learnings in the Post-it® App. Within the App, organize them into groups aligning with their respective topics. Finally, export from the Post-it® App into a format such as PowerPoint®, Excel or PDF. Student can use this as a study guide.

    By having student write their takeaways in their own words’ students will begin to think more critically about lesson concepts because they know they’ll have to express part of what they’ve learned.

  • 5. Teaching that takes

    Students learn through a variety of different methods, but while everything is being done remotely, your students might not be digesting the information you throw at them. A stuck board is an effective way to monitor what your students take away from daily lessons and what areas they need improvement by calling on them to engage more deeply with concepts of the lesson and putting them into their own words.

    Have your students write down their key takeaways on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note at the end of class and stick them to a wall. Ask them to capture the Post-it® Notes with the Post-it® App, which allows those key takeaways to remain digital for a study tool, and resting place as they keep adding to their knowledge. Share with the teacher by exporting key takeaways into a PowerPoint® presentation, Excel® spreadsheet or Post-it® Board. This can also be done in reverse, where teachers share key learnings or important information with students.
