Padlet anyone?

I spent some time playing around with Padlet this weekend.  Awesome Web 2.0 Tool!!!  Padlet gives you a blank wall to add whatever you want to it! Very cool for presentations and very appropriate to meet the Speaking and Listening standards in ELA!  And of course, 21st Century Skills!!!

 

Are there ways you can use Padlet in your teaching?

    Students can create a wall of pictures, videos, and/or resources to summarize key elements of any text in ELA. They could also use this tool to create a research project in any class. This Web 2.0 Toll would benefit student-lead presentations as an alternative to a powerpoint presentation as well. Collaboration could be utilized to create a group wall as well on any given topic, or used as a place for students to collect their "web work" as a creative online portfolio!

    Travis,

    Padlet is a great online tool! This could be used for any curricular area as a way to get input from the students on any topic such as:

    • How would you define.....
    • As you read the story, what thought, images, or questions come to your mind....
    • As you brainstorm your collaborative work project, add your ideas.....
    • Even in math, what conjecture would you make about.....
    • As the teacher is working with students and they are working either individually or in groups, they could be posting their questions they are pondering..... then other groups could be helping to answer those questions as they appear
    • Science topics - such as cells.... images, videos, definitions, ....

    There are so many wonderful ways to use Padlet.

    Padlet used to be known as Wallwisher.  It's been used for the 'parking lot' concept of posting questions or concerns you might have at a professional development or in secondary classrooms. I used it as a place for teachers to post summer activities so we could have a wall share when we came back to work in the fall.  I love the way you can embed video and photos.

     

    I found a nice slideshow 32 interesting ways to use Padlet (Wallwisher) in your classroom that will give you ideas for classroom use.

    What about using Padlet to create a wall of thanks as the Thanksgiving season approaches?

     

    Here's a great video by Richard Byrne from Free Technology for Teachers that shows how to use Padlet.

     

     

    Do you have tips on using Padlet in your classroom?
