CheckThis is a cool tool that you can use to create a one page website or a digital poster. If you are familiar with the web tool Tackk, you will find this web tool very similar to this one. With CheckThis, you can choose from a variety of themes or upload your own background. With one click, you can add text, images and videos. You can embed polls or maps. You can add a link to different websites or you can add your tweets as well.
Once you publish your page, people will be able to like or comment on your poster and you will be able to see it on the right hand side with a real time feed of reactions. The tool is also free and you don’t need to sign up to start creating your page.
We can ask our students to create a poster about themselves and invite other students to leave comments or ask questions about their posters. This can be a great tool to create posters for events, book reports, persuasive writing and even for portfolios. And the best part is that you don’t need to get an account for this tool and you can also download the app if you are doing mobile learning.
Hope you enjoy!
