|Collaboration is easy, fun, and engaging with Padlet!|
Whiteboards are amazing--the open space, the endless possibilities. They are incubators for collaboration and innovation.
Padlet is the 2.0 version of the whiteboard. It's digital--you can post and organize your ideas, and collaborate with students or colleagues. Leave a note, add an image, insert a link, post a video. All things are possible with Padlet. And it's free.
Give it a try.
This activity was created to introduce you to the potential of Padlet quickly.
