Many educators report that Padlet is easy to get up and running with, and they feel this tool is flexible enough for them to conduct a variety of learning activities.

Tips and Tricks
In the free version of Padlet, you’re limited to five Padlets in use. Use them conservatively as an instruction tool, and reset Padlets so that you can change and reuse them. If you’d like to use one throughout a unit or course, be planful for the limits of the free version.
Experiment with varied types of Padlets, allowing you to stretch and adapt the application of this tool across different contexts. Many people start with and like the Canvas type, as this allows ideas to be reorganized.
Choose colour schemes that are readable and not fatiguing for the eyes. Share in your course by posting the link from the Settings.
Visit the Padlet Gallery for inspiration on how educators and learners use Padlet in their teaching and learning.
