How I Use It
I use it daily to display my Morning Message and a small group of my second grade students responds each day. I also use it as a formative assessment to gauge student understanding. Students share their response to a question based on the day's lesson. I have found that for my second graders , a question that only requires a brief response is best because they aren't very fast typers.
My Take
I love Padlet. I really like how I can move my students' responses around. I like to group them by like responses. We use it as a collaborative tool and to correct misunderstandings. I also like that it is very easy to use. My second graders have little problem clicking to add their responses. I did have little trouble getting use to the settings at first, but once they became familiar I have had little trouble using this application daily in my classroom.
