      • Edistorm reminds me of WallWisher but with substantially more power and features. For classroom use, the big downside is that private “storms” require email addresses (which will preclude most teachers from using this tool with their students.) “Storms” can be public, in which case anyone can participate, and, well … there you go. For classroom use, if we can’t restrict participation or visibility, it’s going to be rough sledding. That said, Edistorm has terrific potential for professional collaboration. Think committee work … articulation meetings … district Professional Development events … strategic planning meetings … that sort of thing. It’s definitely viable for those applications! -Welcome to NCS-Tech!
