Creating a Padlet is often described as building a living, breathing web page. If you have engaged with the Curator and Technologist modules you will have encountered this tool already. If you would like some inspiration, have a look at 30 Creative Ways to Use Padlet for Teachers and Students (BookWidgets blog) for a list of specific types of activities. These ideas include Brainstorming on a Topic, Online Student Portfolios, Mind Mapping, Book Discussions, Icebreakers, Geocaching, and more.

To Do:  

  1. Experiment by using Padlet to create an immersive learning activity that you can test out with your students.
  2. Include a public link to your Padlet in your submission for this activity.
  3. After you make your submission, save the web address to your response (found in the green confirmation box) so you can use it later for your badge submission form. 

This activity is part of the Let’s Experiment section of the Experimenter Module.

    I created a Padlet to enhance student understanding of service delivery at the organizational level, such as policy and procedures. I facilitated student engagement and encouraged them to share insights based on their part-time employment or placement experiences.

    by Renee Berquist (@rberquist)

    I created a padlet icebreaker activity I can use with a new course I will be teaching this spring. The class size will be small (10-12) and so this should be quite do-able to help all students get to know each other.

    • Padlet Scavenger

      I love the simplicity of Padlet. The choice to introduce any technology to a course needs to have its value weighed against the cost to introduce it in terms of time and money. Padlet has an extremely low cost of entry. It’s free to use and the UI is extremely simple so requires little instruction.
