How I Use It
I know this is tagged for grades 6-12, but it has been great for my K-5 STEAM Lab classes to use as an online gallery of our work. Each grade has a Padlet page. We post pictures of our artwork, Lego creations, Build with Chrome screenshots, and KidPix screenshots. The elementary Common Core technology standards talk about collaborating with technology, and I think this is a great way to accomplish this task.
My Take
I'd been looking for a way to create an online gallery for my students to share their work. Padlet is easy and allows us a way to use technology to show our class creations. I love that students can post to the wall for me to approve. I love the ways to customize each page. It isn't super fancy, but it is easy and useful.
