This guest post is by Anna, a secondary school Media and Photography teacher.

I have been using it in a senior media studies course as a way to help students analyse the different production and story elements of film. Padlet allows you to create a 'wall' of information - similar to having a whiteboard in front of you, but students can flick through from wall to wall depending on what stage they are up to.
Here is a link to an example:
They are quick and easy to create, provide visual references and also can be used in a more interactive way where the students can help each other build knowledge around a single idea. Great for literature, English, humanities and in primary school as well!
