Comments from some of those who selected Padlet as one of their top tools

“Our team uses this tool as a great way to get people interacting in formal training through using their smart devices in the classroom. In the past our L&D team actually had an introductory slide requesting people not use their devices during training – I feel embarrassed when I reflect on that now! It’s also useful when combining Padlet with Diigo. If we are using several different Padlet boards we just provide the one Diigo link with all the relevant Padlet links we use throughout the session to make it a little quicker and easier.” Fleur Mouchemore, 2015

“I like how friendly it is and allows creativity” 2013

“lots of ways to use Padlet in the classroom – and teachers in the staff room too” 2013
