Click the ‘create new padlet’ label or the + on the right hand list.
This will create your new padlet wall.
You can then give your wall a title and description using the daisy wheel symbol at the bottom of the list on the right.
When you click on this symbol you have other options too.
You can add an image and a background (wallpaper) to the wall and choose whether the layout will be free form, a stream or a grid.
You can copy the wall if you want to use the same wall with different groups of people.
You can make the wall private, password protected or public depending on your requirements.
When you click on the arrow symbol this gives you various options to share the padlet wall so that others can add to it.
As you can see you can email the link or share it using social media.
Why use a Padlet wall?
You can use this tool to ask pupils or students in a class or people in an audience to contribute comments, ideas, recommendations in the form of text, pictures and links. It can be useful to collect views after an event or experience. When the wall is complete you can download it as a PDF.
