How to Use Padlet for Online and Distance Learning

Updated: Apr 1

Padlet is an app I used in my classroom as a way to connect with students and keep my kiddos engaged while using technology. With the free app I created online bulletin boards or message boards that I shared with students. The exciting part is that I incorporated Padlet to encourage engaging and social interactions, and you can use it during online and distance learning with your students, too!

In my video, I share how to use Padlet as a class space for online learning. It's easy to share the link to your board (a teacher-created, public wall) where students can post thoughts and notes about different topics from what they did that day to their understanding of a concept or idea.

Look for ideas and add some, too!


There are only a few steps to setting up an account. While there are some limitations to the number of Padlets you can create with the free version, you can delete old Padlets to make room for new ones and still stay within the limits.


Your class can access Padlet across all devices, and there are lots of ways to use it to assess student understanding of the lesson. Watch the video to learn how to set up your own account and begin making Padlets right away.
