Padlet is a community-centered internet application “that allows users to easily express their thoughts on a common topic” and read what others have to say. With the Padlet app users can create an online bulletin board to display information on any topic.
Collaborators can simultaneously create and organize posts of any content type, whether it be text, documents, images, videos or links.
Padlet is a great platform for bookmarking and sharing digital content. Padlet is also a great tool to use for collaborative group projects, as it eliminates the need to schedule time in advance for the group members to meet face-to-face. Students are able to work freely on their group assignments at their own convenience while still observing every change or contribution made by group members as soon as they are made without scheduling conflicts and the constraints produced from limiting project work to specified times.
The students then give one another’s posts feedback directly on the padlet. The students use the feedback to improve their work and then decide whether or not other posts should be approved or need improvement.
