Padlet just announced a new feature available to teachers called Magic Padlet.

You can read all about it here.

I’m thinking it could be useful when teaching inductive learning lessons and having students create “Picture Data Sets.”

I usually have students use Padlet to create these kinds of data sets of signs (see HOW MY ELL STUDENTS USED PADLET TO CREATE A “PICTURE DATA SET”).

Using Magic Padlet to have Padlet create the sign examples (see image at the top of this post), and then have students categorize them, would save a lot of time instead of having the students have to search the Internet for the examples.  I don’t think much – if any – learning would be lost by doing it that way.

Though I haven’t had time to experiment with it extensively, it would be nice if it would also create a data set of other kinds of images that students could categorize (for example, if we were learning about Jamaica, asking it to create a uncategorized collection of images about Jamaican music, industry, climate, traditions  – and then have students put them into categories and write about them).

I’m adding this post to:
