Connected-Learning-with-Cats Maker Challenge
Laura Gibbs, I know I was late to the Connected-Learning-with-Cats Maker Challenge, but I think my addition was worth the wait! I also made an addition to your Padlet! Does Padlet have a way to tell who posted what or do they need to leave a name to be identified?
Thanks again for all you do!
Oh look, Jonathan Yoder, a BEAUTIFUL Padlet! I think somebody was telling me that there ARE accounts now at Padlet, although I haven't explored that myself. For my purposes I don't need students to be identifiable individually; I use the Padlet as a kind of wall where we are putting post-it notes, but it's a virtual wall and virtual post-its.
But definitely check and see; somebody said something here just last week about how they did not like the way Padlet now had required accounts. I double-checked my own boards and they are working fine as anyone-can-post, so it's not like people have to have accounts, but I think that may indeed now be an option.
I just previewed the Padlet with my class this morning! We also looked at a Pinterest board I created after watching your Canvas Live event! Thanks for all you share!
WONDERFUL!!! That is so exciting! These platforms that make visuals a big part of the experience are using the Internet right iMO.
The sheer difficulty that students face in being able to upload images to a Canvas Discussion Board is a huge drawback that I hope Instructure will eventually fix... but for now, hey, we had Padlet and Pinterest for easy curation, sharing, and discussion WITH images. :-)
So...I have a student assistant, which is a senior or instead of having a Study Hall can help a teacher with whatever tasks...So my student and I dived into Padlet to answer my questions about authoring/accountability and how it looks on the student end and I'm happy to report that Padlet only gets better!!! You can have it tag who commented...you can allow other to comment and rate posts, I can even assign a grade for a post! You can even replace bad words with "emojis" What the !
Oh, now this is really cool! I am pinging John Boekenoogen who was feeling stuck with Padlet to see if your ideas and examples here might be helpful for him to see. :-)
Jonathan Padlet can do no wrong. I love it. It can be used in sooooo many ways. Kids love popping the gifs they make up onto the padlet - ouch. Love the way it embeds into Canvas. Brilliant.
Glad you are loving it too.
What a lovely way to make use of Padlet! Thank you.
