Miro

Welcome to miro, our collaborative online whiteboard platform! This interactive tool allows you to organize and present the content you will create during our Summer School. 

First of all: feel free to install the miro-Software directly onto your Windows, MacOS, Android or IOS device. It makes navigation easier and you can get notifications if something new is happening on your miro Boards.

.

Once you are invited to our Summer School Team on miro, you will have access to the boards titled „GENERAL THOUGHTS“ and „GROUP WORK“. Just click on one of them to see what’s already in store for you!

.

As you can see, the „GENERAL THOUGHTS“ board provides several frames with sticky notes. Scrolling your mouse wheel will let you zoom in or out of the board while clicking and pulling will allow you to move around freely! You can also use the little map overview in the bottom right corner to navigate.

.

If you like, you can switch the navigation mode from mouse to trackpad (and back) by clicking on “Navigation-mode”, hiding behind the settings-button in the right upper corner.

.

Once you have made yourself comfortable moving and zooming around, let’s take a closer look at the actual tools! You’ve probably already noticed the toolbox to the left. Hovering over the icons will give you a short description of what to use them for – there is the arrow tool to select objects, the sticky note button to create post-its, a free-hand pen and many more. Feel free to check them out!

.

Below you can find the board summary or activity buttons which bring up sorted lists of the board’s frames, comments, chat messages, activities and also a few premium features that we do not use. Currently, there is not much to rummage around … check back later!
