Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Since the Dilemma of COVID-19, all classes have become virtual and I needed to experiment with different platforms that I can work with to suit my educational needs to foster effective student interaction in a virtual setting, which is very challenging. Miro has been extra helpful as a platform in designing both synchronous and Asynchronous activities for students in my Drama, Comparative literature, and English for Academic Purposes classes. I use it also for mind mapping and teacher training workshops. It’s not used across the organization or department but I’ve been sharing its effectiveness as a best practice to encourage other colleagues to use it as well. Students loved it because it’s user-friendly and helps them connect ideas and concepts easily. The only disadvantage for me is that some of the coolest features such as the voting and the timer are not accessible in the free version and that giving editing access to certain students grants them access to all my other boards.
  • Asynchronous activities.
  • Synchronous activities (especially the Paid version features).
  • Mind maps.
  • Making some features more accessible in the free version such as the voting and the timer.
  • A board creator can add different team members in different boards who do not necessarily have editing access to all other boards because it’s a free version.
  • Improved interaction.
  • Helped students connect ideas together.
  • It helps in creating a fun and creative learning experience.
It has been a game-changer, especially with visual learners. Some students were struggling with connecting ideas together and Miro has been a breakthrough for them in understanding many different concepts and how they relate to one another.
It’s versatile and can be integrated to suit different needs.
With students, it has been extremely beneficial while working with them virtually.
