Using Padlet (f.k.a. WallWisher) across the curriculum

Using Padlet (f.k.a. WallWisher) across the curriculum | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Padlet has morphed into a full blown online interactive whiteboard, collaboration, presentation, lesson management system with massive possibilities for teaching and learning. Before demonstrating how I have used Padlet in the classroom in ways I couldn’t have in the past, I’ll give you a quick(ish) tutorial in how it works."

Why choose to use Padlet? Aside from the fact that is free, it does not require that register. Gleeson recommends that as a teacher you create an account so that all the "walls" you create are in one place.

This post provides detailed instructions on how to create a wall and includes two projects that he has done with his students.

If you have not checked out Padlet I suspect you will after you read this post!

I'm using Padlet in a variety of ways, including gathering teacher and student ideas and for feedback about any shifts in practise related to the work I do as a Facilitator of Professional Learning for teachers.

Great Ways to Use Google Docs - Presented Visually ~ Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners

Great Ways to Use Google Docs - Presented Visually ~ Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

These days a good way to capture the attention of an audience is to present information visually. For this reason, I created a glog of popular ways to use Google Docs for Learning to share with the teachers at our middle school. Just look at the glog, find something that interests you, and click on a link to see snippets of samples implemented by our teachers.

Preparing our students for Web 3.0 learning

How do we prepare out students for Web 3.0 learning? This slide show by Judy O'Connell provides us an opportunity to look back in time, from what we might refer to as Web 0 and the journey to where we are today and where we are heading. Many define Web 2.0 as the social web. Web 3.0 will be defined by data, and the ability to link data in new ways. Many excellent resources are embedded within this slide show, so find some time to pull up your chair and learn more about what the future may hold.

At it's most basic level, digital tools can be used to help students find, understand and use information. When combined with student-driven learning experiences fueled by Essential Questions offering flexible learning paths, it can be the ticket to success. Here is a closer look at three components of effectively using technology as a tool for digital differentiation.
