The first tool I'm going to share is Padlet. You can click on the button below to go directly to the padlet webpage. Padlet is a tool that allows you to collect and gather information from your students. You will need to create an account. I suggest creating your account through your school Google account so you have one less password to remember. Go ahead and create your account.
Once you have created your account you will then create your first padlet.
Simply click on the button that says "New Padlet" or "Create Padlet". This will open up a blank space and the options will appear on the right of the screen.
You want to give your padlet a title and description. I typically ask a question or share a link in the description that I want my students to easily find. You can also choose the layout and background theme for your wall. Once you are finished click "NEXT"
This will bring you to the People and Privacy page that looks like the picture above. You can choose your privacy setting and what those with access can do. If you want your student to contribute to the wall, be sure to choose "Can Write". When finished click on the "NEXT" button.
This box will pop up where you can click "START POSTING"
Next you will want to share you padlet with your students. Click on the work "Share" in the top right corner.
Here you have options to copy the link to this padlet which can then be pasted in Google Classroom. You can also consider printing the QR code for your student to scan using iPads. You can embed the padlet into your website, email, or share on social media. Most
