Using Padlet

Using Padlet

It’s been a while since I blogged about learning technologies so here it goes.

I’m hearing more and more about seminars and classrooms using Padlet in various ways to showcase findings, research and lesson activities.  Padlet showcases itself in saying “Padlet is the easiest way to collaborate in the world” and I agree.

Padlet used to be known as Wall Wisher and was mainly used in classrooms with educators.  Learners would sit at computers or lap tops and send a message to the screen and it would appear as a sticky note.  It was great for getting individual feedback about lessons and I used to use it all the time with my learners.

Since my teaching days Padlet has introduced some fantastic new features.  When I’m delivering group training sessions I use it to gain feedback from the session.  This also allows me to show other people wanting to use the software what it can do and how it can be used.

Some examples of how Padlet can be used:

  • To gain feedback
  • For customers to leave you questions and queries
  • Attach information, videos and web links with useful information
  • Research topics
  • Blogging
  • Create a poster or information source
  • New Business Ideas
  • Brainstorming

If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about you can check Padlet out here.

There’s even an app available for apple making it easier to use in classrooms, seminars and lectures.

I spent two years delivering learning technology training including Padlet whilst working as a Training Officer so I can help if you need any help learning how to use it.  I truly love it and there’s so much to show you.  What are you waiting for?

Give it a whirl.
