1. Wave clearing
The first thing you can do with shrooms is clearing out creepwaves, or creepcamps. You put a mushroom in the middle of a creepwave and let it explode. It will deal so much aoe damage that the wave will die and you can finish off the rest of the creeps with autoattacks. You can also use this to guard your turret. You just need to know how the creepwave is going to walk and put down mushrooms in that route. This will guard the turret from far. You can also place down mushrooms near the turret, if a creepwave or enemy get to that turret.
If you're running from someone and you have a little bit of a gap, quickly place down a shroom right where you're standing. This mostly have people back off, since they know they will get slowed if they step on it. And of course if they continue, they will get slowed. You can also run towords shrooms you placed earlier, so best if you put down shrooms on escapepaths just in case. This will also help down your teammates if they get chased.
Although shrooms don't grand you as much vision as actual wards, they are free. Which means you can place as much shrooms as you want (of course, if you have shrooms up). Try and place Shrooms on keypoints on the map. Baron, Dragon, Buffs, Jungle entries, brushes.
Heres a picture of shroom places:
Green= Both purple and blue.
Purple= Place shrooms here if you're purple side.
Blue= Place shrooms here if you`re blue side.
When you're 1vs1ing someone, you can place down a shroom ON them to deal extra damage and also slow them if they are running. Also, if a teamfight is about to happen, try and place as many shrooms on that area. It will randomly slow down and damage people. You can also do this in your own lane, placing shrooms to zone your enemy. If you're laning against a irelia who can jump on you for example, always make sure that she jumps on a shroom as well.
Also, if an invisible enemy steps on a mushroom, it will still explode! So if you know they have a Twitch, Shaco, Evelynn, any invisible champion, use your shrooms as vision and defense to those champions. A mushroom also will explode if Shaco puts a box on it. You can try counter those boxes with shrooms that way.
