Tech Tools: Have You Tried? (6: Padlet)


Padlet is a collaborative pinboard / brainstorming platform. It works across platforms and has quite a robust free version.

Padlet can be set up for secure sharing, and can handle many different file types. Students can reorganise ideas, and can link their thoughts with connector lines. Think of it as collaborative, interactive, less annoying version of Pinterest.

The real strength of Padlet is that it enables collaborative sharing and discussion. It is also a lovely way to encourage learning beyond the classroom.

Try Padlet for…

  • Class discussions
  • Cooperative brainstorming
  • Group research tasks
  • Curation of class resources
  • Literature analysis
  • Book reviews
  • Presentations
