In Room 41 we have been using padlet on our mini iPads. Padlet allows us to share our thoughts and ideas with each other and create a wall. We have used it when studying Egypt. Before starting a study we like to think about our prior knowledge or schema as well as our questions. In the past we would use sticky notes and write our ideas down then share them with each other on a chart paper.
This time instead of sticky notes and chart paper we used padlet to collect our ideas.
It was really neat to see other peoples ideas pop up as we recorded our own ideas. It helped us come up with more wonders, questions.
