Padlet is a virtual wall that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device.
Pedagogical Implications
Padlet can be used in the following ways:
  • to brainstorm ideas from a class
  • to collate research on a topic
  • to gauge understanding on a topic
  • to test student knowledge
  • to curate website links
  • to share information to an audience

Examples of activities done with Padlet:
  1. Book Reviews: For classrooms reading books such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn or The Great Gatsby, Padlet offers a great venue for students to share their thoughts. Young people can highlight favorite quotes, ask questions, and discuss characters and more. Teachers can then take the page and present it in class to spark continued face-to-face discussion.
  2. Topic Summary: Useful for any subject from math to earth science, Padlet can help teachers summarize a large amount of information and present it in a visually pleasing way. Educators can put in text, photos, graphs and other learning tools and share the image with students before a big test or discussion.
  3. Greeting Cards or "Thank You" Wall: Have you had a speaker come in recently to share his/her knowledge on a particular subject? Or did a famous author come in and read his/her latest book? Padlet is a great tool for sending a group "thank you" note. Each student can post an individual message, and the platform offers many interesting designs and other tools for personalizing the card.
  4. Questions Board: Students can access a "questions" board 24/7 and anonymously post questions. The teacher can then read off and answer the questions each day.
  5. Opinion/Forum: Educators can post a particular topic or issue, and students can post their opinions on the subject. This is a great building block for teaching students how to write opinion pieces or persuasive essays.
