How I Use It
Padlet is a place for students to share ideas. You create a question/topic and then with the link, they can all post a thought/response. I like that the link seems to work indefinitely - this is great when you have students post their wonderings at the beginning of a unit, and you can come back to it at the end of a unit. But I wasn't fond of the layout, and it isn't a very deep/rich program. It doesn't auto prompt you to log in first the way that some websites do, so the first time that I used it many of my students mistaken posted their comments as anonymous.
My Take
Overall, I did not like this program. I would not recommend it.
