I have enjoyed using www.padlet.com this year for presentations with teachers, ICs, Principals, and in classrooms with students. It is a versatile, interactive bulletin board which will allow you to upload links to websites, upload files, and add labels or sticky notes to the board.
When using this for professional development, I add the basic information that I need to present first. Then, I add documents, videos, websites that will enhance the learning process. Some teachers/students work at a faster pace or may have knowledge about a certain subject, so I include activities for them to do while I work with teachers who need help with the more basic concepts.
It is also helpful because teachers can add a sticky note while I’m teaching and I can stop and answer the question that they posted on the Padlet board. Also, they may have resources that they’d like to share with others and they can add their resources to the board, too.
I believe that teachers learn best when they have choice. This is the purpose of using Padlet with teachers. They can choose their pathway to learning.
Here are the last 2 Padlets that I have used for Professional Development.
