Padlet for Online Collaboration and Publishing

posted Feb 27, 2017, 10:42 PM by Adrienne DeWolfe   [ updated Aug 20, 2018, 3:26 PM ]

Note: Padlet has now limited their FREE version to 3 padlets per user. 
Padlet is a sticky note website, which is super versatile for fostering collaboration, sharing resources or publishing student work. Padlet is easy to use and does NOT require an account or login for students to post. Padlet (formerly known as wallwisher) allows for grid layout or stream layout (one after another scrolling), which helps to keep posts organized. Padlet automatically generates a QR code and also provides the option to export/download notes in a number of formats. Padlet is accessible through any web-enabled device, laptop, ipad or Chromebook is FREE. 

Uses for Padlet in the classroom:
  • Students post their research on shared topics
  • Teachers share a bank of images or links for students to use in a project
  • Teachers share student work that has been uploaded
  • Students post their learning at the end of each unit and then review at the end of the year
  • Try these awesome thinking templates from TechChef4U on TPT (Example)
