Apps and Tools for Digital Learners

November 18, 2014


Padlet is an awesome online tool that is FREE to use! Once you sign up for a free account, you create 'pages' where students can post information. Students can type information, post images, and even post creations from different apps (once saved in the camera roll) directly from their devices to a Padlet page. Each page has a unique web address you can share with parents and can even embed the pages into your itsLearning courses. Once you create a page, it will even generate a QR code from within the Padlet site for students to scan and post information.

*If students search for images, be sure to use approved sites or encourage students to create their own images or take their own photographs.
