WordWall Activity Maker – free download until Xmas

Wordwall is an interactive activity maker which allows teachers to make resources to use with a whole class. You can use them on an interactive whiteboard, or just with a projector.

Word Wall allows you to make dynamic interactive activities like you would in other IWB software. It would be ideal for users of other IWB’s /Interactive Projectors where the software that comes bundled with the boards is not as user-friendly as the software that Smart or Promethean users gets. It’s also useful for Smart/Promethean users as an additional resource.

When you save a flipchart that you have made you get the option to share it. This means that, if you have an internet connection, a copy of your file gets added to a central online library of flipcharts. These files are then accessible to any other Word Wall user. This is a very neat idea that  means that there’s now quite a large bank of user-created content already there that teachers can share and download.

You can use the activities on their own as a teacher-led resource, or with Wordpad handsets to allow student input.

Normally, WordWall charges around £879 for a site licence of the software, but they are currently running a special offer where they are giving away free site licences to schools who register before Christmas 2012. So get in quick if you want to try it out.

The invitation code you need to use is NOVDEC12. It’s a site licence with no time limit, it just needs to be installed before the end of the year.

You can download it from getwordwall.com.

Update : It’s looking like this is a UK-only offer. I’m trying to get confirmation from Word Wall.

Update 2 : It’s now possible to get in the USA. See details from Josh in the comments. Other countries not yet due to licensing arrangements.

  1. Is this available to anyone or do you have to be in the UK?

  2. I’m in the US and tried to register but couldn’t. I then tried to email the company but the email is rejected every time.

  3. Thanks for mentioning it on your blog, Danny.

    At the moment it’s limited to English schools, but we will expand this out at some point to the US and elsewhere. Bobbi & Mary – if you’d like to email me, I’ll issue you a licence key. My email is js at getwordwall.com

  4. Will you update when/ if it becomes available to the US?

  5. Thanks Josh – if you let me know when the situation changes I can update the non-UK readers

  6. Tried to download in Canada but no luck. Sounds like a great program!

  7. Josh- am i able to get a licence key also? I am in Australia and would love the chance to try out another great UK educational tool.
    Thanks

  8. Hi Josh, I would like to get a licence key too. Is this possible? I live in Germany (working in the public sector) and I would like to try the programm.
    Thanks,
    Angelika

  9. An update from Josh : It’s now possible to get in the US :

    If you get the latest version we just uploaded from getwordwall.com they can select the US version and assuming they are at a state school they can select their school from the list. If they are at a private or Canadian school if they email Josh he can send them a key.

    Due to licensing agreements we’ve got in place we can’t make it available outside England and North America at present, but we’re looking to expand this in due course. If they send Josh an email I can put them on a list to get it when it does happen.

  10. I watched the video, learned about WordWall, and I want it! I looked all over the site and couldn’t find how to register. Help?

  11. Its currently open to US, Canada and UK. If your school isn’t listed with us there is now the facility to add it yourself without needing to contact us for assistance.

  12. Your blog states Word Wall is currently available “It’s a site licence with no time limit, it just needs to be installed before the end of the year.” As the program is locally installed on each computer rather than on a server – are we covered to install the software on other school computers at the same site in the New Year with the NOVDEC12 code? Do all members of staff wishing to use the system need accounts set up before the New Year or can these be added next year without the need to purchase a site licence. The offer seems too good to be true and we’re wondering if there’s a catch!

  13. Thanks for the software! It is working well and sharing it with other teachers around here is making other teachers happy! Y’all have a great product, fast customer response, and y’all type with a funny accent. Love it!

    Good luck with your future success.
