How to Use Padlet to Manage Tasks

Padlet is one of my favorite web tools because it can be used in many ways for many purposes. Today, I used it to have teachers share the things that they created during my workshop. In the classroom I have used it as a digital KWL chart. This afternoon I noticed that Padlet offers a wallpaper titled "My Tasks." If you select "My Tasks" as your Padlet wallpaper you can use Padlet to keep track of tasks on your to-do lists. The wallpaper has three columns; "to do," "in progress," and "done."

Applications for Education
Using the "My Tasks" wallpaper on Padlet could be a good way for students to organize tasks when they are working on group projects. On a shared wall students can move their to-do notes from one column to the next as they progress through their group projects.
