Documenting Learning in Mathematics (or any other subject) using Padlet

Documenting Learning in Mathematics (or any other subject) using Padlet | Math education for the new millenium | Scoop.it

I see many benefits in this process of documenting the learning and not just in Mathematics.

In this new era of collaborative teaching, it’s a great way of recording a lesson for other members of the team to view.As a Maths leader/mentor, it’s a useful way of modelling a lesson for teams to discuss.For students, it gives them access to previous learning that they can revisit at different times of the year to review/revise and support their learningFor assessment purposes, it can provide a record of the different stages of learning that took place during a lesson or series of lessons.the use of Padlet itself opens up personalised access for students to work at their own pace ( not evident in this lesson as it was more of a guided lesson rather than an independent task)

I love this instant visual reference to learning. Thanks!
Katie Frank's curator insight, June 9, 2013 12:50 PM

This is a great way to reference learning visually. Love the idea of using Padlet as an e-portfolio through the year!
