How I Use It
I used it with staff as an ice breaker during a professional development session. It worked great! You can even embed videos.
I also used it as a Do Now with students. For this to work I recommend Padlet Backpack which lets you create classes.
I think it is a great and exciting way to engage students in discussions in a fun and collaborative way. It is a great way to have a record of your students thinking. I do really recommend Padlet Backpack to create classes although currently there is no way to do bulk uploads of students.
