How I Use It
I use this in multiple grade levels. My first grade class I asked them to share the results of a graphing activity we did in class. They posted their results and we than were able to move the notes and show a graph. In second grade my students used Padlet as a way to share with their group information they learned about their animals they were studying. My third grade classroom we would use Padlet to write different cyber safety rules we should follow when working online. The fourth grade class and fifth grade class we used Padlet as a ticket to leave or a quick reflection. Padlet can be used to have students give you a quick response to a question or as a way to collaborate with their peers on a topic. This coming year I am going to have my students create a timeline of events using Padlet. We only use the free version of Padlet
I love that it does not take long to teach the students how to use it and it can be used for so many things. The students can create their own Padlet and turn it, into you or you can create one and let them access it. We are always looking for ways to have students collaborate or share a thought and Padlet allows us to do that with ease. Padlet allows for the quiet student to have a chance to speak in a non threatening way. Depending on how you set up Padlet it can be anonymous or you can have the students identify themselves. Overall, Padlet is an amazing tool that all teachers should try!
