Abstract

Extract:
Padlet (previously known as Wallwisher) is a free Web 2.0 application that provides a virtual wall and collaborative space accessible from any Internet-enabled device. It is a live online bulletin board that has been described by its developers as “a living, breathing webpage” and “the easiest way to create and collaborate in the world.” Any number of participants can simultaneously view, add, and rearrange content on a Padlet, including text, images, and links to other web pages, videos, or documents. The bring-your-own-device application is easy for students to use and does not require an account or login to post on an existing Padlet. I consider myself technology-impaired, yet found it easy to teach myself to create and use Padlets to actively engage students at all points in the learning process. The biggest problem I faced was containing my enthusiasm and not over-using the technology!
