Teach Thought 30 Day Blogger Challenge- Day 2

TeachThought 30 Day Blogger Challenge- Day2

Next up on this blogging challenge is technology: Write about 1 piece of technology that you would like to incorporate this year. Ah, that is an easy one- not much reflecting needed there. I would like to infuse a little Padlet into my lessons! Since I am going to have Chromebooks at my disposal for a whole semester in my classes (I am so lucky!), I think it will be a great platform that students can use to collaborate as they learn.

Why Padlet? I know that there are lots of great collaborative tools out there, but I like the personalization that I can give to the Padlet area. I like to pretty my activities up, like to include relevant pictures or a thoughtful background as my language students chat about a theme, so this let's me be creative When everything is done and ready to go for the students, that Padlet activity looks pretty eye-catching! My activities can POP with PADLET!



  1. I LOVE Padlet! Consider using as an entrance/exit ticket - when you have students use (ie) Questions and/or Ah-Ha as the first line (name) and then in the body add their question or ah-ha. The beauty is as a teacher, you can go to settings and download as Excel. You can then sort and find out what students know and where they struggle. Great quick formative assessment!

    1. Ooh, Excel download...indeed beautiful! Thanks for the suggestions!
