Help Center — Bitsboard. The moment you "share" a board the board gets uploaded to the Bitsboard catalog.

Help Center — Bitsboard

Sharing boards accomplishes three things. 1. It allows you to share boards with other Bitsboard users. All the other user has to know is the name of your board so that when they search for it in the Bitsboard catalog they can download it with one click. Teachers love sharing boards with their students for example. 2. Mom's love creating custom boards to help their kids excel in school. 3. When you share a board, we instantly create a copy of it online. TIP: If you have already published a board on the Catalog you can always update it by first making changes to the board on your device and then clicking on "Share" again. QR Codes in the Classroom.

In fact, the first posting about this lesson has had, as of today, 17+K hits! WOWIE! Improved worksheet and graphic clues! I found that I needed to make the scavenger hunt questions simpler & the clues more graphic. I then Photoshopped it adding the University of Maryland Terps logo onto her cute red t-shirt because she's a U of M alum & a super fan! To do this lesson, students use the two iPod touch (Gen4) from Amazon (LOVE Prime!) Share in small groups.
