Padlet the creative Bulletin Board is a web site I ran into recently, and I am so impressed by the simplicity and at the same time complexity of this web application. I am doing this tutorial in three part and this is part 2. You can sign up for Padlet at Padlet.com (if three people sign up using my referral link I get an additional free Padlet). With the use of Padlet I see endless opportunities, not just in and educational setting, as a teacher tool to create assignments and study material, and as a student to do assignments, reports etc. but also for personal use, maybe a recipe collection, or a motivation board, or for any business use. Once you get to know the functions of Padlet the only limitation is your creativity. In tutorial 2/3 I will go through all the remaining types of notes you can add to your Padlet, and in the last part I will go over the different types of layout you can chose to use and examples of when they are most suitable. I will also go through some of my favorite Padlets I have found as some inspiration.
Today I also created a new introduction video for my channel. The reason is my new more narrow content niche, and I needed to introduce the new direction for my channel. You can watch it here. It is so much fun to getting back into creating tutorials, but I will also try to find some apps and software to just make reviews off. I have not given up on teaching methods and assessment videos, but it is more inspiring to create something different for a while. If you continue too long in the same style and format you will eventually run out of ideas, and you need a creative boost. I think mine is just this.
I still have so much to learn when it comes to YouTube, and I keep on practicing my craft. One great source of knowledge, information, and inspiration is Pusa Studios, a channel that really supports other creators and that I recommend to anyone that want to create for YouTube. I have learned so much from them, and found so many great channels just being a part of their live streams.
So to today’s video. If you want to watch part one of the tutorial before getting into part 2 I have it linked here, and let’s take a look at part 2
