Dotstorming is a website that allows students to collaborate on topics much like a Padlet board, but students also have the ability to vote on topics. This allows the teacher to see what the consensus is in the class.
Dotstorming is probably the easiest tech tool you can learn that can make a huge impact in your classroom. Dotstorming has become my favorite collaboration space because it encompasses many different elements - such as a chat window, idea board, and voting options - that make it a great resource for the classroom. - ChrisTuckerEdu
