How I Use It
Popplet is a great tool that allows students to create graphic organizers about what they have learned. In my classroom, I use Popplet in a variety of ways. My students create Popplets in their brainstorming stage of the writing process, to classify objects in science, to characterize famous people in social studies, to create word webs, etc. Students can import text, drawings, and pictures into their Popplets. Popplet allows students to show case what they have learned in their own graphic organizer. After students create a new Popplet, it can be emailed or saved in their camera roll on their iPad. My students save them on their camera roll, and then use their Popplet in another app. The Popplet can be imported as the background in other apps, and students can justify and explain their Popplet. The Popplet app has many possibilities to help students enhance their education.
Popplet is an awesome tool to help students create individualized graphic organizers at their own level. It can be as advanced or as little to meet each students needs. I really like that students can import pictures into their Popplet to better explain their information. Popplet is also a great tool for students to teach each other. Once students have created their Popplet, they can teach their peers about their topic on their graphic organizer. Overall, Popplet is a wonderful teaching tool to help students create their own graphic organizer. If students can create something and teach it to others, then they have learned the material.
