Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Add Audio & Video Notes to Padlet Walls

Padlet is a versatile tool that I have used and promoted for many years. When it originally launched it only supported text and picture notes. Over time new features have been steadily added to it. The latest feature added to Padlet is an option to make audio recordings directly in the notes on a Padlet wall. In the following video I demonstrate how to add audio, video, and picture notes to a Padlet wall.

Padlet’s audio note recording option could be a good one for students to use to create short podcasts. Or you could just have students record short audio notes as an exit ticket at the end of a lesson.

Some of the other ways that you can use Padlet in your classroom include voting on responses, making flowcharts, and creating distraction-free video playlists.
