Padlet – create and collaborate.

imageThe ATS Service has been using and promoting Padlet since it first appeared under its original name, Wallwisher. It’s a fantastic classroom (or bedroom for homework) tool for collaborative working.

Usually we use it as part of our CPD sessions with staff and just make passing reference to its possibilities. We mention where to find Padlet and most teachers just pick it up and run with it.

Over the years Padlet has had many new features added to it: more ways of recording ideas – text, photos, video, voice recording. It’s had new layout and distribution options added … and more.

I came across a fantastic blog post by Vicki Davis TheCoolCatTeacher that explains Pafdlet in detail and provides a great guided tour through all its functions.

So, if you’re new to Padlet, or have only used its basic functionality you really should have a read through Vicki’s guide which can be found here.

It’s worth having a look at Padlet’s gallery of examples which is here.
