Tackk: Creatively share anything on the web

Tackk is a new website which allows you to create simple web pages with ease. It is a similar concept to Padlet but with a slightly more minimalist appeal. Essentially it is like an online bulletin board where you can simple create event flyers and mini adverts.
Each Tackk expires after one week unless you sign up for a free account. The free account lets you keep Tackks indefinitely and create personalised urls for each Tackk.
Although Tackk has slightly less functionality than Padlet, it is extremely simple to use. This would get even the most technophobic teacher using technology to enhance learning. I absolutely love the simplicity with which someone can now create content. Teachers' time is extremely valuable and the less time they have to spend learning to use complicated technologies the better. If you are not confident with technology I challenge you to try this out in a few lessons and see if it changes how you teach.
