12 Days of App-mas: Padlet

In the spirit of the holidays we will bring you 12 Days of App-mas. Each day we will offer an app for education. We will  offer suggestions for how the app can be used in a class. Comment with ways you have used these apps.

App: Padlet 
Cost: Free
Description: Padlet is an Internet application that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device. 

Think of it like a multimedia friendly, free-form, real-time wikihttp://padlet.com/

I have been using Padlet in my middle school classes as a brainstorming tool for different topics. Recently, 7th grade classes created a list of essential iPad skills and apps that we have used in school. I plan to use the lists they created to build their final assessment.
