Hi Miro Community
We believe the 2021-22 school year is an opportunity for all educators to shine even brighter. Now, with all the new skills you’ve cultivated over the past year of distance learning, you can create engaging, blended learning experiences that incorporate the new tools and technology you mastered.
Today, we’re kicking off the How Do You Miro? Online Classroom Templates Challenge!
This contest is all about best practices for online whiteboarding and classroom collaboration. We’d love to see your favorite activities for online or blended classes that work on the virtual whiteboard. Please share with us and with the Miro community your best examples of collaborative activities such as:
- Case studies
- Field surveys
- Learning games
- Investigation groups
Of course, if there's a group activity that went over really well online or in a blended class, let us know all about it!
Note: If you’re a student or educator and you don’t use Miro EDU plan - just apply! It’s free and has lots of advanced features! Also, don’t miss a blog post about Miro’s back-to-school resources.

The template is awesome! Can I use/copy it?
Some templates can be chosen to be added to Miroverse, so please stay tuned! If you need this template right away, please reach out to the author directly.
Can I post more than one template?
Can I win both prizes?
