A board that I am proud of is this one:

 

I made this board for a class I taught for industrial engineer students in Universidad Panamericana Campus Guadalajara, this class was about entrepreneurship and I wanted to teach them about service design, so they where able to use SD tools on their businesses.

This activity was to research a local restaurant and develop a delivery service experience.

 

What I loved about this board in particular is that some teams made the board their own, adding memes, emojis and playing pranks to each other (stealing post its or adding memes on each others work space).

This was while we where still in online teaching, so that little interaction was a huge deal for me because made me and the students feel closer to each other.

 

Hello all! This is a board I made (Halloween-themed), so from October, and it shows one of the pedagogical tools I make through Miro for learning French (high-school/secondary level in the UK). The aim of the board was to help tutees understand the uses of the Imperfect tense in French and how it differs from the passé composé, another past tense in French. The board I created encourages students to look at the various examples provided in the pile of sticky notes (at the top of the board), and sort them into the relevant columns depending on the example given (you can see the columns on the left of the board). Students seemed really engaged with this activity, and I also integrated some Halloween-themed follow-up activities to help with vocab learning!

@Clinton du Preez I really like the visual effect in the stakeholder mapping frame, it looks like a physical screen or notice-board (or what's it called)!

Thanks, @Henrik Ståhl and @Anna Savina for the positive feedback. The stakeholder map effect worked really well and got some good feedback from the group - they almost felt like they were standing in front of two big physical boards and doing their stakeholder and empathy maps together.

I can also not understate how well the global map with names worked as an opening and closing round practice - especially with a group of people from all over the world who needed to get to know each other very quickly. It created a shared context and with the Miro timer, made opening rounds efficient, less awkward and more joyful.

Here’s a seminar programme journey that also forms the base of the Miro board. Each day’s activities flow from it mind-map style to ultimately create a memory board at the end of the seminar. It adds to a feeling of progression and co-creation during a two-week seminar.

 

 

A Miro Board that I am proud of is for one of my courses at University. I am trying to get better at Miro and decided to use Miro for a website redesign project. I am redesigning a website (Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, http://www.noahsarkanimals.org/) and wanted to do some research that would help me identify user flow issues as well as usability testing. Eventually, this would be synthesized to a sitemap or information architecture. Creating this board has helped me identify how I want to organize the website redesign.

Bonsoir to everyone :vulcan:
 

Living in France, I was a huge fan of Fort Boyard TVshow and Home Alone film when I was child, so during our lockdown I imagined how to combine the both to create a small escape game as a creative warm-up/ice-breaker for remote workshop. 
Voilà the result :point_down:

Chalet Alone icebreaker

 

 

Waiting for your feedbacks (and chalet escapes) :dancers:

Cool!

I’m looking forward to trying out this new board in my graphic design class, it’s a scavenger hunt in which teams will have to find examples of accessible technology in their everyday life and post screenshots or pictures to their team’s area of the board:

Hi,

I would like to share our Virtual Exhibition - House of CYNIC

Since we haven’t been able to visit partners and interacting/showing our facilities and lab physically as much as we were planning before the pandemic, we decided to create Virtual Exhibition - House of CYNIC to invite students, teachers and others to our virtual house showcasing what we are doing. It was a fun work and good exercise trying to summarize all our work in an interactive and visual way.

Feedback Ideas

 

Hi everyone - I’d like to share some board feedback interventions that I use on Miro. I am coming from an Education context, but the feedback methods I learned come from UX Design and Business. I think these methods can be really useful posited at different parts of the board. 

  1. Open Feedback

I use open feedback when I’m getting students to give each other pointers on their drawing skills. I give a few leading questions to get them going but the idea is to let them be free and see what everyone is doing. You can set up the board so that people give themselves feedback, or give their peers feedback. Or you can do both, one after the other. I time this event so that people don’t labour too hard over it. After we discuss the feedback.

 

  1. Feedback Matrix

The second method is a Feedback Matrix. This is another method taken from Design Thinking. Often people find feedback very hard to process so it’s worth structuring how people receive it so that it is really productive. 

One of the biggest problems I encountered with feedback while working in Further Education is that we often throw it into a lesson without discussing the nature of feedback itself. We have to teach students how to give and receive feedback to be high quality and effective. We also have to set it up so that we are sensitive to any tensions in the class.

Another issue that can arise with feedback is that students might think they are generous by not giving any. They feel the quality of the work is high, and they shouldn’t give critique. But there are always ways to improve. Considering Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development, we should always give students feedback, even if they are doing well.

Looking to see how creative industries deal with feedback, I came across Hedi Schaefer’s Feedback Matrix. It has a heart for “Things I like”, an X for “Things I didn’t like”, a lightbulb for “Here’s an idea”, and a question mark for questions you want the person to answer or consider.

Hedi Schaefer’s Feedback Matrix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADOwmvWmmMA 

I understand that this comes from UX Design and Design Thinking methods — so I had to assess how to bring it into a classroom. The question part is definitely something we should think about in terms of leading questions and reflective practice. Perhaps we can draw their attention to something or elicit them to explain their rationale.

One of the really successful things about this matrix is stressing that even if you liked everything, you still leave something in the “Things I didn’t like” area. Again, this is very ZPD and keeps everyone on their own journey to progress.

When I use this in a classroom, I try to dedicate one entire class to feedback itself. This means we start with some sort of pair discussion about times when we got feedback and watch a video on effective feedback techniques. Next, we look at the tenants of good feedback, such as the buy-in “Can we have a chat?” instead of unsolicited feedback. Then, we read several case studies and discuss best practice for feedback. Finally — the students do their first Feedback Matrix on the class I just gave, and then I show follow-through by circling their ideas and showing I am going to take action. Only after will we start using it in a regular classroom context.

My students (undergraduate studies in Management) and  I have had fun and engaging learning experiences using Miro. In this following board, we discussed about Marketing Mix and used Pepsodent as a product to be reviewed. Students are super excited during this learning activity, sharing their opinions actively and participating in finding and collecting references to be posted in the boards. I recorded this online collaborative activity and posted the link of the video in the board for students to review. 

 

I am new to Miro but I am just loving the simplicity and the awesomeness of it. I have decided to build some software so I thought id just start here in Miro. We all hate documentation. 

Im more than happy with what I have so far and i will grow it as I go. A bit of brainstorming, some kanban items, a couple of p[rocess flows and a possible random layout.

 The Situation 

We wanted to replicate the energizing feeling that comes with attending an in-person conference...virtually! I used Design Thinking to work through what challenges (cost, lack of human connection etc..) we needed to solve for and decided to create a prototype in Miro. 

 

 The Board 

The board includes a replica of a conference venue, complete with plants, lounge areas and even a bar! :tropical_drink:  If you’re thinking about hosting a virtual conference, think no further than Miro.

I’d like to share with you my Miro-Board that I use with my Meetup Community to introduce to them the basic functionality and share best practices (a) from my experience as well as (b) let them share they experiences (Heads up: This is a German only Community). The section for each session thereby build itself rather organically depending on the topics and the participants. 

We are building each new session on the same board and thereby always having a point of reference for everyone. Important: Between the sessions the board settings are on «commenting for the guests», so no-one accidentally deletes something - although I have a back-up.

For the next session we will be talking about how to integrate storytelling into your board design, for example making in linear top-down or linear left-right, using a circular layout, or combining that with a bullseye look, and many more - building on this community post here. Great post. @Martina Crnkovic  Thanks for starting that thread. 
 

As you can see, I changed the layout between my first and second session to see how it is different for me as a facilitator and the participants.

This is a board I am very proud of because it is the board I use to teach my colleagues how to get started with Miro!

In this board I show other teachers how students can collaborate in a Miro board and I show them the basics to build their own boards.

@mlanders Would you be able to show a video or further instructions? I’m not able to get it to “animate” in your example.

Hello,

as an enthusiastic user of miro as presentation tool I created a board where you can see that it’s possible to have an animated style by using the frames.

Just try it yourself and use the frames and try to do it this way:
