If you have never tried Padlet before, I suggest you check it out. I found out about this wonderful free online program this summer. I have used it twice in my classroom already.
The first time it was meh. Not all my students had computers and they had to shout out what they wanted me to add when we had a brainstorming session. Many voices weren’t heard because, well, you know that student, the shy one that doesn’t speak up and especially not to the whole class.
Today we used it again in my Art 2 class. We had our final brainstorming session about Man/Machine and the relationship, meaning, and interactions. Almost all of the students had computers so they were able to add as we went. It was a huge success. It can be anonymous and helps those who don’t know or don’t want to share their physical voices.
And bonus, I can share the link on their Art 2 webpage so they can reference it.
It really pumped me up as we move to the art making stages of this unit.
