Wallwisher now known as PADLET

I have seen Padlet used in a few different ways by teachers, which has of course inspired me to write this post and come up with some more ideas of how to use it. So instead of writing the ideas in this post I have added them to the Padlet. Please feel free to add but additions are moderated.

If I was using this with students in real time I would not moderate it until later.

You do not have to set up an account, but for classroom use I would as you can save and view all of your walls.
