Padlet is ”an online bulletin board used to display information on any topic.” Each individual has the right to decide who views his board, and this could be done by changing the settings as one of the following: open for public contributions, completely private, or moderated, which means you approve all contributions before they show up on the board. Before signing up for an account, one could try it first and see whether it would be of an interest. Once you have created the account, one can create various boards, on which one can add images, links, videos, and more.
This tool can have interesting uses in class, mostly for collecting ideas and brainstorming. Teachers could use it for the purpose of posting assignments or other resources. Moreover, even the students themselves can post and share resources with their classmates. Padlet is a useful tool when teachers have quiet students, who are shy to ask questions in class. One solution is to create a plenary wall, where the teacher asks questions about today’s lesson so that s/he would know who had understood the lesson. Another interesting way of using Padlet, which was listed in the link below, (https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1UU17Rv45SfVdWyJGaI3rIo1373C_DS5xHLZcsy1NOaw/embed#slide=id.i97) is to create a board for students to list their reviews of the past year and what are their objectives of this year.
