Using an Entry Ticket with Padlet

In this clip, we present how you can create an entry ticket activity with Padlet.

Padlet is an online multiplatform tool that creates a virtual wall where teachers and students can collaborate and reflect on a variety of topics. They can also share videos, links, images and sounds. It’s even possible to record a comment directly in a post and draw something.

Other ideas to integrate Padlet in class:

-  To activate prior knowledge in collaboration
-  To check for understanding
-  To brainstorm vocabulary or sentences to reinvest in a written production
-  To share resources (images, videos, links)
-  To showcase student’s work
-  To receive or record feedback
-  To summarize student’s learning
-  To ask metacognitive questions

Reinvesting Information to Create a Brochure and Produce a Video Advertisement Using Adobe Spark Video

In this clip, Julie Pilote, a secondary ESL teacher at Le Centre Saint-Aubin (CSDC), explains how she organizes classroom activities for her students to create a brochure and produce a video advertisement using Adobe Spark Video.

In this project, teams of students plan a trip to a Canadian province or a territory of their choice. Each member must plan a complete day in a city/town! At the end, they have to present their trip at the ITAC (International Travel Agency Contest). This famous contest is the best opportunity for the team to present a destination and its wonders.

Students will:

  • Create a business card of their travel agency;
  • Create a travelling brochure;
  • Produce a video advertisement;
  • Present the trip to the ITAC.

This activity was designed by Julie Pilote and Sophie Bernier, ESL teacher and ESL Consultant, CSDC.
