Padlet is a visual collaboration tool. Students add virtual sticky notes to a virtual bulletin board. Add text, video, images, links and more to sticky notes.padlet_blog_300


When students move content around on a Padlet board, it’s tough to see who is doing the moving. Makes it easy for students to mess with each other’s work.

Sample Uses

Padlet pages are great for brainstorming activities, generating ideas and collating and reviewing responses by a group of participants to a particular stimulus or resource.

It’s a great way to introduce a topic and generate further discussion, identify key issues, and become open to alternative points of view or experience via a review of what others think etc

Padlet pages are more visual and aesthetically pleasing than a wiki (see column, right)

Padlet pages are very quick and easy to create compared to Wikis – is the feedback I get from lecturers.

Content is easily exported and saved for future reference in a variety of formats.

Padlet is a virtual wall where students can post notes, images, videos, links and documents. You can create a Padlet for free and your students don’t need to sign up for an account to post.

The Padlet can be inserted as a link in your Moodle site, or you can use the embed code and the students can add to the Padlet without having to leave Moodle, however if there are loads of resources it may cause some display issues.

Padlet is particularly useful when you want students to collaborate on external resources as whole class or as a group brainstorming a project or assignment.

Padlet is excellent for brainstorming and back-channeling. If you take advantage of the ability to upload custom backgrounds, it can be used as a digital collaborative graphic organizer, which is very cool! It has privacy settings to help support moderation and student safety/digital citizenship, but the free version does allow students to enter things anonymously (which can become problematic in older grades, where it’s funny to enter false names or type inappropriate things). Just something to be aware of; you may want to moderate more closely if you suspect your audience might be inclined to abuse the anonymity option.
