I love the idea of exit slips, however, I want to find a way to incorporate them into technology instead of paper and pencil. Padlet is one way I plan on having students complete a virtual exit slip. Padlet is a virtual wall 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.
Below is a video from Richard Byrne on how to set up a Padlet for your classroom.
