Padlet iPad app: https://hec.su/bQSA FREE
I am always looking for ways I can use technology to help enhance learning in my classroom and I’ve been a fan of the Padlet website for some time now, but lately had been wishing there was an iPad app,
Wish granted….. Padlet has released an iPad App. Yippy Skippy!!!! It functions the same way as the website, so not much of a learning curve, but with an additional very cool feature that teachers will no doubt love. When you want students to join your Padlet wall, they can scan a QR code with the Padlet app to instantly join. No need for a separate QR code scanner app. So one less thing to worry about.
What is Padlet exactly. It is a blank slate or wall where you can collaborate. But very different from Google Docs collaboration! Padlet takes the concept of a blank piece of paper, and lets you put whatever you want on it and share. When you are done adding and putting things onto your wall, you can share it with others in a variety of ways. By things, I mean, text, links, videos, images, and even attachments.
In my opinion, the best feature of Padlet is the ability to collaborate with others easily. When you share your wall with someone or a group of people, they can contribute to your wall with the same features that you have. It really is a great way to join forces easily and looks very nice when completed. Hold a discussion, collect resources, share information and more.
My one suggestion, is to choose the Grid layout, otherwise you have to organize the “tiles.” I did an App Smackdown a while back, where students added their favorite apps, http://padlet.com/ded318/26sjklf5uerd. We did this in class in about 15 minutes!!
