Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great for Organizing Ideas

This app is great for students to use for organizing their ideas or brainstorming at the beginning of a project. A lot of the tools are familiar as they represent tangible items that students use on a daily basis. I have recently started using this tool in the classroom with my students. The students are using Corkulous as a planning document and can choose to use it for their final presentation. The idea of a corkboard is something that has fallen away from users especially in this age range, but I like that users can choose between to-do lists, post-it notes, pieces of paper, etc in order to make it their own. They can also choose to add pictures they are thinking of using within the project (if fitting). Corkulous makes it easy for students to access their planning documents at any time as well. It is more visual than creating a Google Doc to organize and brainstorm. The best part is that once you have completed the board or completed a task, you can begin to take away the post-its, pieces of paper, etc. Since they are using technology, student users are much more engaged than if the teacher provided them with paper supplies and told them to plan their assignment or essay. This would be a beneficial tool for students in middle school because it is easy to use. When the user opens Corkulous, it would be easy for him/her to play around with the app and figure out how to use most of the features provided they have experience with technology. After working with the app a few times, it would become much easier for the user to understand exactly where the tools are, the purpose, and how to use them. The major downside to Corkulous is that you only have one board to use with the unpaid subscription, so if you wanted to create more you would have to pay for them. Being unable to save as many of your boards as you choose is the main reason for the lower rating.
