Over the weekend Padlet announced the introduction of usernames to replace email sign-in for your Padlet account. Along with this change Padlet is introducing two related features that should prove to be helpful to teachers and students. First, all of your walls will be moved to a special URL containing your username. This should make it easier to direct students to the Padlet walls you are using in your classroom. Second, Padlet announced that soon you will get a public page containing your username and all your public walls will be shown there.
Applications for Education
Padlet is one of my favorite tools for hosting brainstorming sessions, collecting exit ticket information, and creating collaborative KWL charts. In the guide embedded below I outline how to use in your classroom. You can download the guide here and view it as embedded below.
