Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I learned about Padlets recently when Amy Ludwig VanDerwater created a Favorite Poem Padlet and shared it at The Poem Farm. So. Cool.
I can see tons of ways that teachers could (and probably already are) using this tool with their students. Anybody can add a note without creating an account, so what a simple way to display student work. I love it! Teachers could send out links to show off student projects to the public or to parents (you can adjust the privacy settings), embed the Padlet as I did below on their classroom blog or school website. Students love to see their work published, so I think this would be a really exciting classroom tool.
I wanted to give it a try, so this week I had folks who wanted to share their 15 Words or Less Poems (which I host every Thursday here at my blog). Not everybody chose to participate in the Padlet part, but you can see the grouping so far here.
Feel free to add to either Padlet! To add to the 15 Words or Less one, just go to yesterday’s blog post for a few simple directions.
The lovely Keri Collins has the Poetry Friday Roundup today at Keri Recommends. Stop by to check out the awesomeness!
