Incorporating Technology with Padlet

Hello Literacy Land Friends and Followers!  I'm Deniece from This Little Piggy Reads.  Today I'm going to share a website with you, Padlet.  There are a few reasons that I love Padlet.  First, it's incredibly user friendly for both me and my students.  Second, it's quick!  I mean super quick to set up a "pad".  Third, it is incredibly versatile and would work for a variety of grade levels and most subject areas.  Finally, it works on any device - phone, Mac, Google, tablet, etc...

For the first part of my post, I am going to explain the functions of Padlet with a video!  You can click the picture below to watch the video, or click HERE.

Now, I'm going to discuss all the uses of Padlet in a classroom.  There aren't many websites/apps that are applicable for PK - High School, but Padlet is!  In an Early Elementary Classroom, you might use it in place of a Bubble Map.  In an Upper Elementary Classroom it could be used as an exit ticket.  In a Middle School or High School Classroom, a teacher could easily use it for a novel study, literature circles or a socratic seminar.


If you are looking for ways to integrate technology into your classroom instruction, give Padlet a try!

Leave me a comment with your favorite way to integrate technology into your lessons!


  1. Wish I would have known about this app before they redid all of our iPads! I will have to put it on mine at least to use with my students. It would be great to use with all of our students! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. It is a website, not an APP. If you have iPads, you can airdrop it to them.
