A super cool way to allow students to share their thoughts, learning, and ideas is the web-based tool Padlet. Padlet has a school focus (backpack) and a business focus (briefcase). Both of these formats allow users to collaborate in an easy way.
First, create your account. You will get an amazing welcoming email that will make your heart shine!
Next, create a new padlet.
Then, click the + sign to create a new padlet.
To add to the wall, double click on the wall.
You can personalize by picking a wallpaper from the padlet board, or creating your own.
You can change the layout to make it free form or organized.
You can use the padlet link they give you, or create your own link to share.
Or share the wall, allowing others to add to the wall, click the share button.
You can limit who sees your wall through the privacy settings.
