Awesome Updates for Padlet

Padlet has become a favorite tool for collaboration and communication so I am super excited for the new updates Padlet has unveiled recently.

Here are three of the updates that I love the most right now. 

1. I am probably most excited about the new Reaction feature. Now teachers and students can Like, Vote, Star, and Grade posts in Padlet. You can turn on one of these 4 options for each Padlet that you create and share. This is a great way to engage students in Padlet.
  • Like is just like it sounds. Have a little heart when you like a post. (Think Twitter)
  • Vote allows users to give the good old thumbs up or thumbs down. (Think YouTube)
  • Star allows users to rate a post between 1 to 5 stars. (Think Amazon)
  • Grade allows users assign a grade on a scale. (Think Google Classroom)

2. You can now create a Padlet using 1 of 5 Formats or 1 of 8 Templates. These Formats and Templates bring new style and versatility to Padlet in the classroom.

3. Posts can now be Color-Coded with one of 6 different colors regardless of the type of Padlet. Colors add another way to organize and categorize posts in collaborative Padlets.
