How I Use It
At the beginning of any digital writing project I like to have students post their ideas in order to promote discussion and idea sharing. Students use Padlet to post their initial ideas. Classmates then revisit the shared site, look over each other's ideas and ultimately write a blog post reflecting on one or more ideas they have read from their peers.
My Take
This is a great and simple tool. The simplicity allows kids to get in, look around, and hop out relatively quickly. Great for an additional digital tool for the 21st century classroom.
