Are you looking for a new way for your students to collaborate on assignments? Do you want a simple way to share a variety of links, videos, and information with your class all in one place? Well Padlet is just for you. Teachers will have the ability to create interactive webpages that students can access in order to make comments and to post information during class. Padlet has been around for several years, but this year there is a new feature that Padlet has added called Padlet backpack. Using Padlet backpack, teachers can assign students a username and password to access the class Padlet website. This is a simple tool that can be used to post comments, pictures, videos, webpages, and student-produced interactive presentations for your course. I have also used this resource to post slideshows, PowerPoints, pictures, and other online media that students have created in my class. Click here to check it out!
Here is a video with a quick tutorial of the features that Padlet offers.
