Padlet

Padlet an App for collaboration. I have tried this out in class. The most interesting feature for me as a teacher interested in inquiry-based learning is the KWL chart. The KWL chart represents three columns

(1) What we Want to Know
(2) What I Wonder
(3) What I Learned.
You can add more columns if needed. You can enter text and pictures.

Will we get really interesting questions that probe for inquiry, investigation, exploration and creativity? The example given on ‘giraffes’ is very much oriented on facts, yet which interesting and creative questions could come up?  For example:
How do giraffes give birth so that their offspring does not die immediately when falling from such a height?
How and why did giraffes get their long necks?

My first KWL Padlet is a discussion on Inquiry-based learning aimed at first years teacher training students.

Padlet can be used as an App or in your browser. The latter gives you a much better overview.

You may also be interested in the blogs on LearnLab, Kahoot, and Socrative.
