What is this tool for?
Padlet is a tool used to foster engagement by creating virtual bulletin boards for displays (also known as Padlets). More than one person can contribute to a Padlet wall, making it a great tool for teamwork and group projects. Different types of multimedia can be added to Padlets, such as videos, GIF’s, audio, text, images, etc. This makes Padlet a tool where instructors and students can participate in creative activities that are more engaging and meaningful. Instructors can share Padlets via links or QR codes and these can be easily accessed on computers and laptops, Chromebooks, iPads, or smartphones.
Padlet also offers different options for privacy and security, allowing Padlets to be public, secret, password-protected, or totally private.
