Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro as an educator with my students in five classes of ~24 students. Remote/hybrid learning and social distancing have necessitated the use of virtual tools for collaboration. Miro allows me as an educator to provide students with options for large and small-group collaboration, processing, and access to content material in more "hands-on" or interactive formats.
  • Real-time cursor tracking allows students to see what each other are working on and avoid collaborative "collisions".
  • Lots of options for integrations, media uploads, plug-ins, templates, etc open up whole worlds of options for displaying content, creating unique activities, and for students to create and present projects.
  • Excellent online community for templates, ideas, and support.
  • The 16-year-old age restriction is terrible for me. High schoolers start at 14-year-olds and it seems pointless to me that the cutoff would be 16. Most internet services have a 13-year-old cutoff for services such as social media that collect and use user data.
  • The user age restriction is the biggest one! Everything else is excellent! Please email me if Miro ever changes their EULA to include 13+ or even 14+-year-olds.
  • I donʻt have any hard numbers, but engagement in Miro activities is really high. Almost every student participates (which is a huge rarity in activities that arenʻt graded in a virtual environment).
  • I consistently use my Miro lessons as evidence of innovative teaching practices during evaluations and it has helped maintain my reputation as a teacher who is tech-forward and provides students with skills that are directly applicable to future careers. Other tools I use with students are Excel/Google Sheets, PPT/Google Slides, Google Draw, Trello, Canva, and Adobe CC for photo and video. I think Miro has such a wonderful use case that is not covered by any of these other tools.
Same here. Itʻs a wonderful, powerful tool that needs to lower the age restriction for students.
Templates allowed me to implement them right away with ease on Day 1. The learning curve is gentle, so I quickly was able to see potential uses for Miro in my day-to-day, which let me make my own templates and upload content to customize activities for my classes. Super useful.
Huge. Virtual learning took a ton of scaffolding and innovation to find ways for students to collaborate on group projects remotely. Miro was a really important tool for enabling that collaboration in real-time.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Miro go as expected?


Would you buy Miro again?


We also use Padlet, which isnʻt on your list. Nowhere near as powerful of a tool. None of the above allows for the depth of real-time collaboration that Miro does.

It is so good for collaboration in the classroom. I would 100% recommend Miro Education for teachers with juniors and seniors. Bummed that I canʻt use it with my younger students.
