Padlet is the easy way to create and collaborate with others

Padlet is an Internet application that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device.

Think of it like a multimedia friendly, free-form, real-time wiki.
