Lovely online drawing tool

Posted by rosiemacalpine on November 27, 2008

There’s a few of these around, and I’ll post some more in the coming weeks.

Odopod’s offering is simple, but beautiful.


I’m not an artist so I stayed with something simple. I had a look at the sample sketches however, and some people are creating beautiful things with this tool.

I’ve used drawing software in the classroom mainly as an introduction to using the whiteboard. I think it allows children and adults to experiment with pen pressure and positioning, in an environment where they can just scribble and make mistakes.

What about other primary teachers, or primary/ secondary art specialists? Do you think this website would have a place in your classroom?

Dabbleboard – Online whiteboard for drawing and writing

Posted by rosiemacalpine on November 27, 2008

If you’ve ever wanted to access simple IWB software on another computer, Dabbleboard could be something to try.There’s a signup option on the front page but you can ignore this and click on get started button at the top of the page.

The options of online IWBs pose an interesting question. In the future, will the software that comes bundled with IWBs be less important, as free online versions become more elaborate?

Vodpod videos no longer available.
