At Wednesday's faculty meeting, Dr. Romero modeled the use of Padlet, a website designed to faciltate collaborative thinking and learning. Since most teachers were unaware of this free, easy-to-use web tool, I wanted to continue to explore its usage in the classroom. Padlet is often used as a "backchannel," which is a digital conversation that runs concurrently to a face-to-face activity, but there are many more ways we can use it to engage our students.
This video will show you how to set up your own boards and ways to share them with your classes, but I would love to hear your ideas about how you could use Padlet to increase student learning. Double click on the board below to post your ideas, or click here to access the larger version on the web.
If you do decide to use this in your own class, please let me know. I would love to come by and see it in action, or hear how it's working for you.
