Module 4a Assignment|
Collaborative tool Padlet, began in 2008 with a different name
"Wallwisher". The idea was to "be a simple place to put stuff
on the web." It developed over the years to much more than that,
and today offers a space for multiple people to place their ideas
and thoughts in one place, including the ability to add images,
audio files, upload items, add web links, draw, and much more!
The website is www.padlet.com

1) What is Padlet?
||Padlet is a software to use making and sharing content with others.
Somewhere between a doc and a full-fledged website builder,
Padlet empowers everyone to make the content they want,
whether it's a quick bulletin board, a blog, or a portfolio.
This collaborative virtual wall was created in 2013 by
Nitesh Goel and Pranav Piyush.
Padlet's logo looks
like an origami paper-folded crane with head at right,
tail at left. Body's
center resemble a church steeple or a bishop's mitre.
In Japanese culture,
it is believed that the crane's
wings carry souls up to paradise. So there
is a spiritual element in Padlet.
2) Sign Up for Padlet
||Padlet offers free signup with Apple, Google, Microsoft, or Email.
I chose Email: firstname.lastname@example.org with 14-letternumber password
Checked in box "I'm beautiful" and clicked the "Sign Up" button.
Clicking Make a Padlet, gave 8 choices Wall, Canvas, Stream,
Grid, Shelf, Backchannel, Map, Timeline. Can't see pink circle
with the plus (+) in the bottom right hand corner. Did screenshot
showing all 8 Padlets, and selected Wall Padlet & Map Padlet,
combined in Photoshop for the image at left.
Kim said we should be able to do this right in My Portal/Canvas.
If it does not work,
here is the link to the padlet: https://padlet.com/krandall13/linc90C21.
Kim asked: "If you were to design your own collaboration tool,
would it do? What features would it have? What would people
use it for?"
3) LINC-90C Students Responses on Creating Collaborative Tool
My response to|
Having taught kids
in the K-12 program
of CPITS to write
poetry, I would
create a collaborative
tool to engage & inspire
them to brainstorm
together, sharing ideas,
photos, videos, to make
their work livelier.
Canva templates can
help them with designs,
Pinterest photos have
images to illustrate their
poems, YouTube videos
and Google Earth can
take them travelling afar.
|I have used "Geometry Playground"
for students to choose "Circle, Square, Cross, Triangle,
in writing their poems.
My "Geometrical Figures Compilation"
with dozens of examples will stir
students to action.
If they are interesting in travel, "Literature Trips to Points of Inspiration"
offer another avenue for exploration.
