learninginhandPadlet is a free website for collecting and sharing text, images, videos, and files. The teacher signs into Padlet.com to create online bulletin boards (each one is called a padlet). By default, each padlet is set so that students do not have to log in to view and post. You can create as many padlets as you like, and each one has its own web address.
- learninginhandI highly recommend enabling moderation so that you have control over what appears publicly on a padlet. Do this by clicking Share and scrolling down to Moderation. With moderation turned on, each post must be approved before it is published. Not only does moderation ensure that no shenanigans appear for everyone to see on your padlet, it also makes it better for having multiple students contribute simultaneously. Without moderation enabled, students can see all posts as they are being composed, which is distracting. And, often students’ own posts are bumped around the screen as new ones are added. Although enabling moderation is almost always preferred, it’s not activated by default. You’ll need to turn it on for each padlet you create.
- learninginhandUnder a padlet’s Settings you can turn on Comments. This allows viewers to comment on posts. Be careful because you cannot moderate comments before they appear. However, as the padlet owner, you can delete and edit comments. Tip: Turn off comments after a period of time to prevent rogue comments from being added later.
- learninginhandPadlet has three layouts. I prefer Grid as it shows multiple posts on the screen without overlapping them. The Stream layout is great for giving a padlet the feel of a blog. Freeform can be useful if you’re sorting posts.
- learninginhandYou can upload any image as the wallpaper for a padlet. That means you could upload a Venn diagram, KWL chart, or any graphic organizer that you have saved as an image.
- learninginhandPadlet has iOS and Android apps. I prefer to use Padlet in my browser, so I don’t the app. #edtech #padlet #teachersofinstagram

- learninginhandYou can make lots and lots of padlets! I usually use at least one padlet during my teacher workshops. Today I have hundreds of padlets under my account. In fact, I started using Padlet years ago when it was called Wallwisher.
- learninginhandYou can click Share on any padlet to get embed code for your blog or website. You can embed the entire padlet or embed a preview image that links to the padlet.
