Tool Review – Padlet – Civilized group sharing

Collaboration tool.  Great place to gather information and organize it with a group.

Padlet is an amazingly flexible communication and collaboration tool.  It is a micro publishing platform that allows for posting of text, pictures, video, and audio.  For me is is the missing link to tie together all of the digital classroom communication and posting.  Padlet offers a free account to try it out with three pages with unlimited posts.  For $99 a year it offers a classroom bundle and a personal pro version.  I definitely plan on using it.  With it I can create classroom or assignment specific pages that students can post their work on or can refer to for instructions and content.  It is a very flexible platform.

A little bit about me.

If you’d like to learn a bit more about me you can visit my newly created About page.  I bet you will learn a few surprises.  About Mr VinCross.

Here is a video that my son and I made.



Technology in the Classroom @ LaSierra

I’m taking a class called Technology in the Classroom at LaSierra.  It is going to cover a bunch of great web-based tools for classroom teaching.  I’m super excited about it.  I know a lot of bout technology but so far the tools we are looking at are new to me.  I love learning new stuff.  I’ll be posting stuff about what I learn as we go.
