Padlet is a website where you can create your own pages that become like digital noticeboards. These can be completely private and password protected so you can use the space for your own notes, planning or reflection. They can also be public and you are able to share them with as many or as few people as you wish. You can also decide whether you’d like them to be collaborative or just viewable by others. There’s a lot of choice! Watch the video tutorial below for more details.
We’ve collated some examples of Padlet being used in different contexts. Browse through them below:
This Padlet has been set as completely private and password protected. It has been used to keep reflective notes about the SSG project the practitioner is working on.
This Padlet has been used to collate research and findings by a group of practitioners. They explored the most effective methods of providing feedback. This is set as private so it can’t be found by searching for it, only by using the exact web address.
Used with students
This Padlet has been used to create a “home page” for the practitioners’ GCSE English students. Lesson materials and links to resources used in class are uploaded here for students to comment on and collaborate on.
You will need to register to use Padlet, but you can log in with Google if you already have a Gmail account. It is free to use (you can pay to upgrade for more backgrounds and some extra features, but it is fully usable without upgrading).
For more support, please remember you can get in touch with your PD North team contact or email Lou or Emily. Padlet also has its own YouTube channel, which provides you with even more tips! Find it here.
