Padlet is undoubtedly one of my all time favorite sites for student collaboration and brainstorming. Padlet is an online bulletin board that allows teachers & students to post images, videos, documents, and text. All this can be done using the sites intuitive drag & drop interface. Padlet's best feature would have to be it's user friendliness. A teacher can literally set a wall up on the fly and have students posting to the wall in under a minute. You just need to go to, click on the build a wall button, and share the link with your class. Done.

Here is a sample wall that Mrs. Kolar created to display the Fox Elementary Student Monsters -

How to set up a Wall

Step 1:
Go to and click on Build a wall


Step 2: Add stuff to wall and/or share out the link with you class

Double clicking anywhere on the blank board allows collaborators to post to the board. Once the post-it note appears on the board users can attach pictures, video, and links. Photos can be posted by uploading them from a computer, linked from an existing URL, or added directly via. a computer's webcam. 

The Tool Icons on the Right side allows owners to access sharing options, account information, or make modifications to the current wall.
