Padlets are collaborative online pinboards. They are very easy to create and modify. Once created, comments and images and links to graphs, videos and pdfs can be added by you or your students.

Students do not need to login or register to work together adding to a padlet.

There are a range of privacy settings you can apply.

You can embed your Padlet in your blog or create QR code login sheets to put up around your room.
