How can Padlet be used by teachers and students?

The possibilities are really endless. Here are a few:

  • Students can post answers to a question posted by the teacher. The students will be able to see each others posts and collaborate with each other.
  • Teachers can share ideas with other teachers on a variety of topics from how they use technology in the classroom to what dish they are bringing to the staff luncheon.
  • Students can create their own Padlet to create a wall of their vocabulary words. They can include the word, definition, a picture, and a sentence using the word.
  • Students can post questions for the teacher before a test to ask for help on material they may be confused on.
  • Teachers can have students write a short reflection on a chapter of a book they are reading in class.
