Assalamualaikum everyone 🙂
Have you ever heard about Padlet?
In my class today, I learnt about Padlet. This is my first time ever using this software/website and it’s so much fun to play with it. Basically, padlet is a virtual wall that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device.
It is beyond easy and fun to use. In addition, the interface is super intuitive. I would not hesitate to encourage teachers out there to use this kind of website in their classroom. Yah, at least something different rather than using text book all the time. I bet students will like it and it is obviously can attract students’ attention in learning.
In term of sharing, you can share your padlet to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, as well as Linkedin. Other than that, you can also export your padlet into image, pdf, Microsoft Excel, and CSV.
In addition, if you have a WordPress account, you can copy the code given by the padlet and then paste the code in your blog. However, for this part, it requires a self-hosted wordpress blog with the Padlet Shortcode Plugin.
All in all, in my opinion, this is a cool website to use/implement in teaching and learning process. Teachers nowadays should be varied in term of teaching styles. In order to get students’ attention (especially kids these days), teacher should use interesting tools like Padlet.
So teachers, what are you waiting for?
