How I Use It
I have used Padlet often in my daily lessons. I sometimes use Padlet as a way to have students answer a warm up question to begin a lesson or as an EXIT Ticket before they leave class. Students have also used it as an option to present material. I have had students work in groups and research an invasive species and they created a digital wanted poster about their invasive species. Students have also used Padlet to gather information together when conducting light research. Padlet is a great tool to use when students are viewing it on their screen but it is often hard to follow when a student uses it to present a topic to a whole class.
My Take
I think padlet is a great, quick way to have all of your students participate in class. I love how students can work together on the same screen but I wish that it would update automatically when a new post is made. I think this program could better serve teachers and students if there was a way that posts could be organized for a presentation mode so that there is a logical flow of ideas or comments.
