How I Use It
I have taught my teachers how to use it and they have made collaborative boards for students to post their assignments for sharing, morning messages and for resource curation. e.g a grade 9 physics class used the tool to add all their group prezis and powerpoints. Having all the presentations in one space allowed the teacher to take the embed code and put it into her class website. Students later referred to the padlet for review purposes and parents could see it as well.
I use it in faculty meetings to gather ideas, opinions and input or gather data on specific topics of interest.
Padlet is a great resource for both teachers and students. It is an online bulletin board but has a great visual feel. You are able to add various types of media, move around the pieces on the board and have students add their sticky notes at the same time.
