We all like interactive and collaborative learning. There are many ways to do this from online Google documents to paper pencil group projects. One of the easiest collaborative planning tools is Padlet. This is a web based collaborative bulletin board. It can be used in may ways ranging in posting/sharing links, images, ideas, concepts, and others. It can also be set up for classroom team-building and other activities. The ways to use this live tagboard are limitless. The best part is that others do not necessarily have to have accounts to participate. This makes it great for elementary teachers and students. Below is a short video how Mr. Hawkins at Thomas M. Ryan Intermediate uses Padlet with his 5th graders. Head over to www.padlet.com and give it a shot!
