Padlet




Padlet (formerly Wallwisher) allows users to post ideas on a "wall."  In addition, pictures and files can easily be added by dragging and dropping them into the wall space.  A login is not required to access the walls (more information explained here).  Users simply double-tap the wall to type.  Padlet walls are accessible on a computer or ipad by accessing the web browser.  The URL of the wall can be shared to give others access for collaborative projects and brainstorming sessions.  Padlet provides a great place to create formative assessment tools.


A wall can have various privacy settings:
  • Private - the  user and those invited via email can see the wall
  • Password Protected - visitors are required to enter a password to see the wall
  • Hidden Link - the wall has a public link, but it is hidden from Google and public areas of Padlet
  • Totally Public - the wall is completely public and can show up in Google searches and on Padlet's homepage
Check out the privacy settings for a wall to learn more.

Padlet walls can now be exported.  Click the Share/Export button on the right side of the screen and select your preferred format.
