How I Use It
I use padlet as a backchannel when I am teaching--especially when introducing the idea of backchanneling to my groups. I love that I can moderate the comments, that anyone can add photos, links, and files, and that there is no limit to the length of posts.
My Take
This is a great way to comment and crowdsource. The only thing I don't care for is the way posts can overlap and block one another. I don't think this tool is an "in depth" tool, but it does support the method of backchanneling and the wall can be exported for archiving and sharing.
