Methodology of using the resource/ tool 

Padlet is, simply put, an online noticeboard. It gives teachers a blank slate to customize their own platforms and add numerous media resources like videos, images, helpful links, a classroom newsletter, fun classroom updates, lesson material, answers to questions, and more.

As a classroom bulletin board, students can use it as a reference for a lesson topic or look back at daily lessons, keep up to date with school events, or access it as a class document hub.

It is a one-stop sharing platform between students and teachers; offering cooperative creation, high levels of security and privacy, and plenty of sharing options.

Resource for Information

When students are assigned a project, have them all add valuable resources to the board. Research can be shared to make tasks easier and help students have as many resources as possible.

 

Individual Boards

Every student can have their own Padlet board where they can post assignments and articles. This is useful for the teacher but it can also be an organized space for students to collect all their work.
