Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Padlet for Task Management

Padlet is one of my favorite web tools because it can be used in many ways for many purposes. Yesterday, I used it to have teachers share the things that they created during a workshop. In the classroom I have used it as a digital KWL chart. This afternoon I noticed that Padlet offers a wallpaper titled “My Tasks.” If you select “My Tasks” as your Padlet wallpaper you can use Padlet to keep track of tasks on your to-do lists. The wallpaper has three columns; “to do,” “in progress,” and “done.”
