The uses for this site in the classroom are virtually endless! There’s a good chance you’ve done the “write on a sticky note and put it on the wall” activity — or have seen it happen before. Padlet lets those sticky notes have images, links and videos AND be available with practically any Internet-ready device. It used to be blocked by my school’s Internet filter. This school year, the powers that be have allowed it through on student devices, opening up lots of possibilities in class!

How to Make an Infographic: Free Visual E-Book for Beginners

That’s roughly half of all the storage space in a new MacBook Air laptop. With so much information bombarding us on a daily basis, it’s no wonder we’ve become desensitized to even the most shocking statistics. For example, what if I told you that the 74 million richest people in the world possess 50% of its wealth? The real meaning of this statement would probably be lost on most of us.
