Teacher Review for Padlet

The website itself worked well, both in creation (it took me less than 10 minutes to create a 3 question quiz) and the immediate responses popping up on the screen for all to see. I kept my projector screen shut so answers were covered.

How I Use It
I was very impressed by the Padlet website that I used in my most recent Social Studies lesson. After learning through a flipbook and picture matching game, the students were given a quiz to take on Padlet. There were a few “yays” and “nays” to mention however. My students are third graders, so it took quite a while typing in the URL for my exact padlet. We used chromebooks to complete the quiz, this eliminating the use of a link already created on the desktop for them. I would 100% recommend prepared on the desktops beforehand if available, it will make the entire process much quicker. The website itself worked well, both in creation (it took me less than 10 minutes to create a 3 question quiz) and the immediate responses popping up on the screen for all to see. I kept my projector screen shot so that students were not able to see the answers of others until all had submitted them. Overall I will definitely use this website again and again throughout my lessons. It was easy, creative, and a simple way to implement technology that even eight-year-olds can use stress-free.
