How do we use Padlet to empower effective digital instruction?

Padlet is a web app. A “padlet” is a digital space where users post “notes” that are visible to others and available for reactions and comments.

How can a digital learning space like Padlet empower teachers to deliver effective digital instruction?

Digital learning spaces like Padlet make available a variety of communication and presentation tools (e.g., video, audio, screen capture, drawing, etc.) in one location to support teachers to effectively deliver and assess instruction. Teachers committed to building an equitable assessment practice can leverage these tools to meet the diverse needs of their learners. When multiple options are easily accessible, teachers feel more empowered to plan for and offer learners choices in how they demonstrate their understanding or represent their thinking. These instructional decisions increase the opportunity for all students to successfully learn anytime, anywhere.
