How to Use Padlet in the Classroom: A Fantastic Teaching Tool Padlet is a versatile, easy to use tool for every teacher’s toolkit. Let’s dive into Padlet and Learn the Basics. At the bottom of this post, I have a Padlet that is temporarily open for you to post and share your favorite edtech tools. Medieval and Tudor Ships of England Origins and destinations of voyages in the database. The voyages shown here largely cover the period c.1565-c.1580. There are a few documents that record voyage details for the period before 1565 (a few Bristol accounts, a few ships leaving Hull for Calais loaded with wool, and a few east coast coastal records), but most pre-1565 documents only reveal if a ship entered or left a particular port, not where it came from or where it was going to. The Bordeaux wine trade voyages are equally difficult to map. While we know the ships left Bordeaux we can never be sure of where they sailed from to get to Bordeaux or where they sailed to after leaving Bordeaux.
World Migration Map - Data Visualization by Metrocosm This map shows the estimated net immigration (inflows minus outflows) by origin and destination country between 2010 and 2015. Blue circles = positive net migration (more inflows). Red circles = negative net migration (more outflows). Each yellow dot represents 1,000 people. Hover over a circle to see that country’s total net migration between 2010 and 2015.

Getting Started with EdPuzzle – Teachers Vs Zombies When I first began using station-rotation blended learning in my classroom, I worked in a district that had purchased licenses for Compass Learning Odyssey. Compass was mainly used as a credit recovery curriculum, but I was able to pull out specific lessons relevant to the content standards I was teaching in my traditional English 9 & 10 classes. Initially, I used these lessons during the Headphones station in my classroom. (You can learn more about the Headphones Station’s role in blended learning on this blog post.) As I began integrating more project-based learning into my classes, I discovered that sometimes I needed shorter videos or videos on topics that were not covered in Compass, such as growth mindset and 20Time project ideas. I had heard about EdPuzzle at an EdTechTeam Google Apps for Education (GAFE) Summit.
