Padlet Adds a New Post Attribution Feature

It is a not a secret that Padlet is one of my favorite ed tech tools for all classrooms. From creating KWL charts to simple blogging activities to creating digital portfolios,there is not a shortage of ways to use Padlet.

This week Padlet introduced a new way to identify who writes what on a collaborative Padlet wall. Padlet's new post attribution feature allows you to automatically display user names on notes. Of course, your students will have to be logged into Padlet accounts in order for that feature to work. The post attribution tool will make it possible for you to ensure that each student gets credit for his or her contribution to your Padlet walls. It is also possible to turn off the attribution feature and let students post anonymously.
