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

How Can Technology Support a Trolley Teacher?

In this clip, Kimberley Hornburg an ESL primary teacher at CSPI, explains how she got organized after she lost her class because of an increase in clientele.

Being a trolley teacher means that each period is done in a different room with differing contexts and technology. It’s not always easy to manage and to think about everything needed for a period.

Tools such as the IWB software (Notebook, ActiveInspire, etc.) and even presentation tools like Power Point Online or Google Slides can become helpful when you need to get going fast with a class. With these applications, you can already plan a routine and have links that you need for your lesson, LES or activity.
