The Techie Playground 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 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. Richard Byrne, author of Free Technology for Teachers, spent some time teaching the teachers at my school about Padlet. I’ve got some notes in this article that he mentioned in the workshop to give him due credit. What you can share on Padlet: The box where you type or share your item. You can:TypeRecord Your VoiceAdd a HyperlinkAdd a PhotoAdd a Document The flexibility of this tool means you could have one class Padlet for the year and share resources and links throughout the year. Editing As with many tools the gear icon (as shown in the graphic below) is where you go to edit your background and change your settings. You can customize your Padlet page with a different background, title and more. Organizing Richard Byrne taught me something new today.

To help bring clarity to the styles and tools, I have a rather simple outline that I use in my video creation workshops. That outline with suggested tools for creating videos in each style is included in the PDF embedded below. The playlist embedded below demonstrates many of the tools featured in the PDF above.
