Collaborative, Accessible Learning on Padlet!

As a teacher I've used Padlet in my classroom as a place for students to share after a "Turn and Talk" discussion has taken place on what we covered in our previous lesson. The interactive space works well. I just share the link and ask students to post. All comments can be edited or even deleted by the teacher, which keeps it a safe space. Then student posts are projected and become a great review for the introduction to our next part of a lesson.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (5):

There are dozens of bulletin board sites out there, but Padlet is one of the more intuitive, and probably, most appealing to kids. The colorful backgrounds and customization options let kids add some personality to boards, even if they're using them for boring ol' school stuff. The drag-and-drop interface is really smooth and intuitive as well. The depth of the site depends on what you put into it; it's basically a blank page, but Padlet shares lots of support and examples of best use. Parents should be watchful about privacy, but there's great potential for collaboration and teamwork here.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
