Thanks to Fran I have a new toy to play with this summer: Padlet. Hopefully this will my AP students collaborate and share ideas and even ask questions. Richard Byrne at Free Technology for Teachers has a great tutorial for how to use a Padlet, as well as, several other posts with ideas of how to use padlet.
I can post links to video assignments and answer any questions posted. (My students have very busy schedules and will not always have the ability to come in and ask questions before or after school.)
I am very excited to see what my students think. I am always looking for a way to have them ask questions, and have an opportunity to "talk biology."
If you have used Padlet and have any real-class (instead of real world) insight, I would love to hear your opinions and or tips.
