Our first app of the month 2017!

Our first app of the month 2017!

This is a great web based site and  app to encourage children to create a research or information board all about a given topic, theme or in response to a question. It allows children to collect information from the internet and pin it onto virtual bulletin boards using a simple drag-and-drop system. Videos, text, links, images can be added to a board and organized there, like a page full of Post-it notes. You can add as many notes to a wall as you like and it just grows in size! More than one person can contribute to a Padlet wall, opening the door to teamwork and group projects. Padlets can be shared via social media, through blogs or embedded within a QR code. Click here to find out more from the app store. Have a go and let us know what you think!     It's only fair to...
