How To Use Padlet For Collaborating Digitally In The Classroom

Over the years, technology has increased exponentially enabling us to collaborate with a global audience and share information with ease. Teachers, however; still find it difficult to find a tool that makes their work efficient, user-friendly and authentic with an environment that takes care of the safety and privacy of the students. But there is one tool that meets all of this criteria called "Padlet".

Through this web-based board, students and teachers can share information, express ideas and collaborate digitally with each other. The question is; how to really use Padlet in order to collaborate digitally in the classroom?

COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH

Padlet is a great tool for classrooms in which small groups are made and students are asked to have a collaborative research. The students will be able to post images, links, clips, and videos making the traditional notecards very effective. Students can also post driving questions about the topic and once the answers are found during the research, answers below them can be added in order to organize the board.


GETTING TO KNOW:

Padlet in the classroom can be created for faculty and even students to get to know each other. Each student, along with his name can post a note. They can also mention their future plans for something they might be looking forward to in terms of learning or they did something productive over the summers. It can then be a part of scavenger hunt on an open house. The Padlet can be left projected so everyone can see it.

FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT

You post a question after a lesson to know what the students really gained from today's lecture. The question can be big as to know how many of them were able to reach and learn the main objective. This way, you will know about the important points that students perceive along with the misconceptions they might have.

BOOK STUDIES AND DISCUSSION POINTS

Moreover, Padlet is a board for discussion for teaching groups, literature circle run by students or even a book study for staff. The question related to the chapter can be posted by the leader and the responses will pile up as each participant answers. The literature discussions can still take place even if the classroom requires silence.

More uses of Padlet in the classroom include:

·     As a portfolio in younger class to share with parents and you can take a snapshot of student work then share it with them.

·       It can be used as a class back channel for discussions. Students post questions and/or observations during the lesson and you can respond to them later.

·       Sorting out pictures on Padlets for classification and using the Interactive White Board.

·       Put links on a class Padlet and on the start page, set the student web browsers. The work will be on top if you set it to flow. This way, they will know already what they are up for today.


·       Think of Padlet as a bulletin board and get started to collaborate digitally with more technology in class!
