Padlet an App for collaboration. I am going to try this out in class. The most interesting feature for me as a teacher is most likely 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 what 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 can join this KWL and contribute.
