Encouraging Collaboration and Brainstorming

Standard

I have been using Padlet for a while, but this year I am really fortunate to be in a school with a 1:1 iPad ratio. This enables any educator to explore the knowledge and understanding of students in so many useful ways. It takes just a few minutes to record students’ thoughts and to have evidence of their learning!

Padlet in PE can be visualized in this short clip.  Its efficiency is really high, since the discussion is left open on the wall and the students can comment, provide a learning source or consult various viewpoints. In a formative assessment, student can create a wall and brainstorm relating to a certain topic. All of this can happen synchronously, in the classroom, or asynchronously, after the session is over.
