Comments on Padlet in 2022

“Amazing platform for communication in groups. I like it because of a simple form and the way it organised. It’s can be like a blog and I think that’s beautiful.” Katerina, K12 teacher, Ukraine

“Allows for asynchronous community building and learner engagement (first five are free) that can be built straight into eLearning courses. Very simple to setup and use, great UX design.”

“One of many collaborative tools I enjoy using is Padlet, a virtual cork board. I use Padlet to create a shared vision for a class or a team, to create a crowd-sourced music playlist for an event or class, as a parking lot, and to collectively come up with ways to extend learning. This year for our faculty gathering, we have Padlet boards for virtual collaboration and have also printed out posters (with QR codes that point back to the Padlet boards) that people can respond in person to using sticky notes. I love the blend of the analog and the digital that is possible using this approach.” Bonni Stachowiak, producer and host of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast, USA

“Padlet is an online shared sticky note platform for students to respond to a prompt of sorts. Students sign in so you can track who wrote what, and media is permitted on the responses. This is a great way to combine many responses into one area that is shared among a group of people.” Librarian, USA, 2020

“Back in my top 10. Padlet is an easy to use digital corkboard. You can use it to activate prior knowledge, for brainwriting or to share ideas of participants. You can save and share the outcomes. There are different options for privacy settings. Learners don’t need an account. The free version has limitations, related to the number of Padlets you can use.” Wilfred Rubens, Netherlands, 2020
