Talkboard is designed for collaboration. After launching the app, users must enter their name to register. Next, they must tap the “+” button to begin a new project, and Talkboard will present them with an interactive workspace. On it, users can draw with their fingers; choose different ink colors; tap the Image button to add pictures; and use the Clear, Redo, and Undo buttons to edit their work. To invite other users for collaboration, users must return to the main screen, tap the purple Collaborate button, and invite the other users via email, message, airdrop, or by sending them a link. If the other users do not have the Talkboard app loaded onto a device, they will only be able to view a PDF of the work. If the Talkbaord app is loaded, the invitation will automatically sync the two devices, and the users will be able to collaborate on the project. When collaborating, the users can tap the Phone button to communicate in real time and they can both add images, lines, and other features to the project.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can assign students a project to plan and complete together. When planning the project, teachers can have students collaborate using this app. To do so, teachers can assign one student in the group as the Moderator, and that student will be responsible for leading the conversation while collaborating. Another student can be the Recorder, and that student will take the lead in adding text to the project. A final student can be the Illustrator, and that student will be responsible for adding images to the project. That way, when collaborating, students can be organized in how they approach the project. Finally, as part of the brainstorming stage, the Recorder can write each group members’ name with his/her responsibility beside it. Once complete, the group can email their teacher a PDF of the project.
  2. Teachers can use this app to facilitate a Literature Circle activity. Students can choose their role and independently create artifacts using Artwork Production, Office, and Note Taking apps. Before starting the literature circle, students can select their roles and complete their work. When ready, students can join the literature circle and add their work to the Talkboard being used for collaboration. When finished, students can email their teacher the Talkboard for grading.
  3. Teachers can email students a problem to be solved and students can copy and paste the problem from their email to a Talkboard. Next, teachers can assign groups of students to a Talkboard group, and the students can join the Talkboard. Students can then work together to solve the problem.
  4. As a creative writing activity, teachers can assign students to a Talkboard group, and all students can join. Next, one student will begin a story by adding an opening sentence. Students will then each add one sentence to the story until it is complete. To add more flare to their story, students can insert images.
