How Others Can Benefit
- Decide the topic that you want the students to focus on, and put some limitations on the breadth of the topic to keep the contributions focused.
- Develop a prototype to demonstrate to the students the range of possibilities of the technology. In doing so, it would be good to divide the topic into subtopics each illustrated by examples of the kind of resource material the students could post.
- Use the prototype to establish a base of learning with regard to the topic selected. Populate the prototype with a range of examples, both to convey information and also to illustrate the range of possibilities.
- Work with CTET to define the appropriate permissions for your project. For example, instructors will be given one set of broad permissions. Other permissions can be set by student and by group. At a certain point in the project, you may want to expand permissions so that individual students can share their results with their group, or one group with another.
- Set finite time limits on input for postings. For maximum return, it is best to associate the project with a time-limited exercise that has set milestones. Don’t just let it become an open-ended full term project. The Padlet risks being drowned in too much content that will be hard to extract value from.
- Seek feedback from your students and make tweaks and adjustments for future use. They are the prime users and will have helpful suggestions.
