Last week I shared the news that Padlet now includes multimedia map creation options. Like all other Padlet layouts, the map option includes the capability to collaborate. The maps that you create on Padlet can have placemarkers that include pictures, videos, links, text, and audio files. You can even record audio and video within the map. In the following video I demonstrate how to create a multimedia map on Padlet.
Applications for Education
Some of the things that students can do with Padlet’s mapping tool include making maps of landmarks they’ve researched, creating maps of the locations of historically significant events, and developing maps based on some of their favorite stories.
