The Use of Miro in Teaching Practice
Keywords:Miro, software, digital tool, teaching, online collaboration whiteboard, COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has hugely affected our lives, including the daily work of university students and teachers. However, such difficulties can emerge as drivers for change to discover new pedagogical possibilities. Miro is a tool which can help students and teachers cope with the challenges faced during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In this critical reflection, I will explore my experience of using Miro in a digital project created on the website of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Warwick in 2022. The major aim behind this reflection is to show how Miro can be used as a novel way of engaging with students in a physical classroom or virtual spaces. The article discusses using the versatile digital platform Miro as a pedagogical tool for motivating students’ creativity in composition or literature classrooms. The key question that my reflection seeks to answer is ‘how can teachers use Miro to increase student engagement and consequently adapt to the modern and post-pandemic needs of education?’ It is expected that this reflection will deepen both teachers’ and students’ knowledge of Miro as well as provide teachers with a new tool and method for online teaching.
