Managing Workflow with Freeform

Last week, I had the chance to play around with Freeform. I absolutely LOVE its potential for collaboration and creativity - and I have so many ideas for how the students and teachers on my campus can make use of it. One of the ideas I pursued was turning a teacher-created, view-only Freeform board into a space for curating digital materials and organizing students' workflow throughout a unit. Once I started building this prototype - I couldn't help but run with it!

Very clever idea - using Freeform to guide student workflow! Appreciate you showing us how this would work using your Civil War unit.

This was really helpful in seeing the potential of Freeform. It’s kind of overwhelming, so this was great! Thank you!

Great idea. Just looking at Freeform and initially wondered how is this different than numbers, but the ability to add files to that is awesome. I really like the idea of instead of sending teachers/students a folder with various activities you can use Freeform to create a virtual choice board of activities that can be done. I designed a variety of keynotes that imitate social media platforms but sharing out a folder to staff members to look at is not as appealing as using Freeform.

Thanks for sharing! This is a great way to use Freeform. I see this being really helpful in a group planning sessions where ideas can be added, expanded upon, adjusted etc.

@Plahnb I had those same thoughts initially! Numbers was always my go-to for using a digital whiteboard, but Freeform also has so much more Zoom and can be expanded in all different directions rather than just right/down like Numbers. And I agree - I think being able to add files to Freeform is a game changer!
