How I Use It
I use Padlet in several different parts of my lesson plans. One of my "go-to" activities is to ask open ended questions as a warm up or to lead into to the day's topic.
My Take
Before Padlet, I would often have a hard time hearing from certain students, while others would constantly contribute. With Padlet, all are very involved and seem less inhibited. I love that students can share without feeling like things have to be formated perfectly. It's quick and takes very little time to get the students on and going. I find myself using it in the same capacity, but there are a TON of great ways to integrate this application. I encourage all educators to browse and see the awesome options that other educators have used to meld Padlet into their lessons.
