Ten Types of Notes You Can Add to Padlet Walls

As I wrote yesterday, this week Padlet added a new feature to their iPad and iPhone app. The new feature is called Catscan. Catscan lets you scan a set of physical sticky notes and have those notes digitized and displayed on a Padlet wall. Catscan is one of many ways that you can add notes to a Padlet wall. In all there are now at least ten types of notes that you can add to a Padlet wall. Nine of them are featured in the following video. The tenth is the new Catscan option.


Ten types of notes that can be added to Padlet.
  • Text
  • Hyperlinks
  • File upload
  • Video recorded with webcam/ mobile phone camera.
  • Audio recorded directly on Padlet.
  • Scribble/ free hand drawing on Padlet.
  • Pictures taken with webcam/ mobile phone camera.
  • Google Search to add image, video, GIF, or link. 
  • Google Map.
  • Digitized version of physical sticky note (Catscan mode).

How to Automatically Forward Your G Suite Email to a Personal Gmail Address

This is the time of year that I always get a bunch of questions from folks who leaving a school and want to take some emails with them from their old accounts. That can be done by just forwarding those messages from your old account to your personal account. But if you're not leaving your district and you just want to make it so you only have to check one account during the summer, you'll want to use the method that I demonstrate in the following video.
