Maia Hajj's insight:

Think virtual post-it wall--Padlet is an online software that allows you to create online walls where students can post and share their thoughts, ideas, questions, and more with their classmates and teachers. All students need is a computer, internet, and the wall link. Also, Padlet features customizable privacy settings, which allow you to control what kind of access students have from just being a viewer to writing their own post to being an editor, and more!
