Padlet is a website and app that allows kids to create or collect information from the internet and pin it onto virtual bulletin boards. Videos, text, links, images -- basically anything -- can be added to a board and organized there, like a page full of Post-it notes. You can add as many notes to a wall as you like; it scrolls in all directions.
