Padlet is among the most commonly used educational technology tools - for organizing and delivering classroom content and instruction.  But are you using to facilitate your GIS instruction?

Note: The free Padlet account offers users up to three free Padlets (webpages). However many districts have access to Padlet through bulk licensing.

I've set out to organize some instructional material and some teacher professional developmpment content.  While each content set is effectively for direct use by educators, I use just a few of Padlet's organizing templates to add clarity to the content - in one case by organizing geographically and in one case by organizing by teacher level. Examples:

I have 'locked' these Padlets down, but classroom teachers may want students discussing items in a Padlet, ranking, or even adding new content.  It's all possible with Padlet.

Be sure to say hi in Padlet and follow me.
