Padlet - Still a great and useful tool

Reviewed a month ago

I have used padlet for many years as a collaborative tool for my students to share ideas and model tasks and with colleagues to share resources. I can also embed the padlet on my management system so they are visible for students to use for their reference. I like the visual impact it has.

Pros

the ability to collaborate with others and share resources and ideas visually plus the ease of use

Cons

I would perhaps like to see the whole padlet on my screen rather than having to scroll back and forth, up and down.

Vendor response

Thank you for your continued support and positive feedback on Padlet! We're glad to hear that its collaborative features and visual impact are beneficial for both your students and colleagues. We understand the desire to view the entire Padlet without scrolling, and we appreciate your suggestion as we look for ways to improve the user experience.

Great platform

Reviewed a year ago

Great experience. I came across padlet when I was in my college second year. The free feature also makes it possible for you to use a lot of their features - giving users a proper experience of the software before investing in it. You can write, upload, attach, whatever you want. If you're in a creative field - padlet makes your life very easy with sharing access. A lot of processes like mood boarding, user mapping, collateral showcase becomes very easy to showcase.

Pros

I like the fact that there are multiple ways through which I can layout my ideas and my board. It has different themes, and ability to connect posts and segregate them to make sense.

Cons

File mb size. Being a visual designer, some of my images may be of a higher MB. It gets a little difficult to keep compressing it to be able to upload it

Vendor response

Thank you, Vidhi, for sharing your insights about using Padlet. We're excited that our platform has proven valuable in enhancing your creative work as a brand marketer. Your positive feedback on the multiple layout options and themes is greatly appreciated. We understand your concern regarding file size limitations, especially for visual designers. Your feedback is important as we continuously improve our platform's features. It's fantastic to hear that Padlet has streamlined your creative processes, making tasks like mood boarding and user mapping easier. We're honored to be a part of your workflow. Feel free to connect with us on social media @padlet if you ever need assistance or have more insights to share. We're here to support your creative journey.

Padlet used in the Classroom

Reviewed a year ago

There have been some issues with student accessibility but overall, the platform has been very useful and time-saving.

Pros

I use this platform to receive homework from my students or to reiterate any announcements or rules in the classroom. This is the best and easiest way for the students to finish their homework, and for me to grade their work and share the corrections with everyone. The students can view all the graded homework and my comments, seeing what works and what doesn't. The students enjoy uploading images and videos to illustrate their point.

Cons

It would work better if everything was invisible until approved and graded. Some students think they can plagiarize other students' work. They never get away with it, but temptation is still too strong. Some students have been able to gain access to administrator settings, which has been unfortunate.

Vendor response

Hi Mark! Thank you for leaving a review. It's awesome to hear about all the ways that you are using Padlet in the classroom! I'm sorry that you're having issues with student access. FYI we do have a feature to hide new posts until you approve them.

Visibility and individual interaction in the classroom

Reviewed a year ago

It has been a total game changer for me. It is my teaching management system. I also create individual padlets for my students and we use them to interact with each other outside of class for self- regulated learning and feedback.

Pros

I use Padlet to present my lessons and share the links with my students giving everyone full visibility.

Cons

Sometimes the timelines can be glitchy when adding padlets to them.

Vendor response

Great for visual people!

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Padlet is a great way to organize and keep track of information in categories. I am a children's librarian, and I use it to keep track of the books I've read aloud to students by grade level, but I also use the map feature to show where on Earth the books I read are set. Rather than simply writing the title, I can save the and organize images of the books plus their titles. This really helps me...

Cons

My school district pays for Padlet, but I'm not sure I'd use it if it weren't free through the district. I've used way more than my allotted three.

Vendor response

Thank you for sharing your experience with Padlet! It’s wonderful to hear how you’ve creatively utilized Padlet to enhance organization and information access in your role as a children’s librarian. Your use of the map feature to track book settings and the creation of text sets for student reference truly showcases Padlet’s versatility. We understand the concern about accessibility if the service wasn’t provided through your district, and we’re glad that the current arrangement allows you to fully benefit from all the features. Should you have any suggestions or need assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to us on social media (@padlet). We're here to support your efforts in making learning more visual and organized!

Boosting the collaboration and creativity of my students in an interactive way thanks to Padlet

Reviewed 10 months ago

As I mentioned in a previous review, I was a tutor in an English academy, and I must admit that Padlet was an invaluable tool to encourage active participation and interactive learning in the classroom as this platform helped me create thematic boards with resources, such as vocabulary, images and practical exercises, thanks to this my students mentioned that they liked this feature because they could...

Pros

Of the many positive points that Padlet has, what I liked the most was that it allowed students to create personalized virtual boards quickly and easily and also that it has various display options, be it tiled, timeline or map and All these help flexibility in content organization. And finally, another function that I found very useful is that it has the real-time collaboration function between students and between teacher and students, facilitating teamwork and active participation of users.

Cons

Of negative points I was able to realize that the free version has limitations in terms of the number of boards that can be created and the amount of content that can be stored, because in my case my organization provided me with the paid version and I had no limitations in the functionalities of this, however, users who do not have the premium version will be limited to many interesting features.

Vendor response

Thank you, Isaac, for your insightful Padlet review. Your positive experiences with our platform are inspiring. We're thrilled that Padlet has enhanced collaboration and creativity in your classroom. Your appreciation for the personalized virtual boards and real-time collaboration features resonates with our goals. We're grateful for your observations about the free version's limitations and are glad your premium access provided the full experience. Your use of thematic boards for resources is a great example of Padlet's versatility. We're proud to have contributed to your interactive teaching environment.

Padlet for education, bookmarking & planning

Reviewed a year ago

Sharing large amounts of content with large groups of people in an attractive manner that appeals to visual users of today is made easy with Padlet. I love their sunny disposition and little quirky messages; their customer service is ace.

Pros

I love the ease of use and the visual nature of Padlet - it's easy to locate docs or follow ideas. I love the different formats like the shelf and timeline. The new organisational aspects help when communicating large amounts of shared content.

Cons

Would like to see more integration with Google Workspace; displaying cover images for content like Docs, Sheets, and Jamboard would make it more attractive. Would also love to see the format options grow beyond the few they have. Would also love to see folder types posts where materials can be grouped by topic so as not to clutter space and overwhelm users.It would be ideal to include ready-to-use design templates that initiate organisation for projects like a storyboard and reflective thinking like rose, thorn and bud. These would be useful across industries.

Vendor response

Hi Michelle! Thanks for sharing your experience with Padlet. We're delighted to hear that you appreciate the platform's ease of use and the visual appeal it offers. Your suggestions for deeper Google Workspace integration, expanding format options, and additional organizational features are valuable to us. In fact, I'm thrilled to let you know that we're actively working on enhancing our Google Workspace integration, which we expect to roll out by the end of summer! We love to hear that our sunny disposition and quirky messages brighten your day, as that's precisely what we aim for. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need any further assistance or have more ideas. Thank you for being a part of the Padlet family!

They are a really proactive company and everything has been very well comunicated and easy to manage.

Pros

I love that it is visually appealing, interactive, fun, can download content into worksheets, can store resources in an orderly way, can have all documents and internet links in one page ready to post to google classroom. I also love that I can let students onto a padlet for their input, facilitate group work and encourage engagement or I can lock it to protect students from content etc. My favourite teaching resource by far!

Cons

More text and font options would just be an added bonus.

Padlet in the Classroom!

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

I love how Padlet allows students to use technology to collaborate. I have used it in the classroom many times as a way for students to share their thoughts about a subject, while also being able to read the thoughts of their classmates. This technology works great as an Exit Ticket. You can have students put their name and their comment to make sure everyone collaborates. Also, I love how each Padlet generates a QR code. Students can enter the Padlet quickly and easily by using their phone to scan the QR code. They don't have to type a long URL to access the form. This is a great way to get students engaged. I have shared it with my colleagues and they have had great success implementing it in their classrooms as well.

Cons

Some of the functions are little hard for students to figure out, such as how to add a picture to their comment.

Vendor response

Super convenient and intuitive tool for collaborative working

Reviewed 2 years ago

Padlet is now our go-to collaborative working tool for workshopping and insight gathering within focus groups. It has taken the pressure off note takers, and enable participants to communicate their points in their own words rather than being paraphrased by someone else. It has helped us to reassure our members that their views and opinions will be taken away from meetings they have attended with us. It is incredibly easy to set up and share, with a range of useful options that can be aligned with the structure of the meeting or workshop we are running.

Pros

Padlet is very easy to set up and share with others, making it the perfect tool for collaborative sessions involving larger groups in an online space, which has become the way our organisation works most of the time now. Seeing updates to the Padlet in real time assists the conversations, as well as providing those who are less confident to speak out loud with an opportunity to have their voices heard.

Cons

I would like more control over the formatting of the exported outputs in order to make the analysis of content a little easier.

Vendor response

Hi Dan! Thanks for leaving a review. I'm glad to hear that Padlet is your go-to collaboration tool for workshopping and focus groups—that's awesome!

Helpful Starting Point for Discussions

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, even though padlet is simplistic in design and nature it is a helpful and quick tool, especially in the classroom. Users are able to quickly share their ideas and is therefore a perfect starting point for conversations, seminars, or surveys.

Pros

Padlet is a simple way for groups of people to share ideas, brainstorm, and start conversations. In the classroom setting I have used it many times for students to anonymously project ideas on the screen. This easy to access software can help students to get out of their shells and contribute to a conversation/seminar in ways that they otherwise wouldn't have.

Cons

Padlet's features are functional and easy to use, however they are at times simplistic and lack the more refined features that would be helpful. It feels like an online version of having individuals place stickynotes on a corkboard. It can also be difficult to vet inappropriate submissions if you are not vigilant.

Vendor response

Hi David! Thank you for leaving this review. I'm glad that Padlet is a helpful tool for your classroom discussions. It's awesome that all students are able to contribute to the conversation through Padlet. When it comes to inappropriate submissions, we do have some features in place, like require approval, to help combat this issue. We are also working on more automated ways to handle these types of submissions. Stay tuned for more. In the meantime, I'd be curious to learn more about the refined features you're looking for. Could you send us a message with more details? https://padlet.com/contact-us Thanks again for using Padlet!

Padlet is a great tool that has a qualit design for efficient and effective integration

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

I like the templates that are simple and help me decide (efficiently) which type of Padlet I want to create to support my learning goals. I also like the standardization of each post and how learners can interact--sure, we can change/modify some of the options but it's not overwhelming to create and facilitate using the padlets

Cons

I miss the "folders". Now, they're bookmarks but I liked before that I could have folders to organize my padlets by courses (which worked best for me). Bookmark does not translate as a way to organize my padlet boards thematically so I always waste time trying to find them

Vendor response

Pros

Easy to use, intuitive interface. Also, there's a number of very nice features available.

Cons

Some time ago I had some trouble finding/accessing Padlets which others invited me to join in as a member (because I was completely unaware of the fact that all invitations had been sent to me via e-mail), so I think maybe adding a new "Padlets shared with me" section to Padlet dashboard would be a useful suggestion to help users find them more easily.

Favorite platform

Reviewed a year ago

It’s superior!

Pros

I’ve used Padlet and presented it to others at professional development in my district for over 10 years. It’s the best digital tool for my instruction by far. As an arts teacher, I’ve used it to make class pages where students submit work, mind mapping for my own curriculum content, and even for college course presentations during virtual learning.

Cons

I transferred to a new school and lost my membership due to new email.

Padlet Review

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

It allows me to easily embed pictures, videos etc

Cons

I think the formatting templates and how the padlets can be grouped into various folders would be great. It is currently messy for me to organize the padlets well.
