Collaborative brainstorming with Padlet

Enjoyed this activity today: I needed to recap what leisure activities my Y7 students could remember in French before introducing them to the simple Future tense. I made a shared wall on, shared the url with them on edmodo and they had to add a verb and an image whilst trying not to duplicate those being posted by other students. They worked out very easily how to add images from their camera roll. The major advantages of this over a regular verbal or whiteboard brainstorming session were that the kids were doing the work, that they came up with a much wider range of activities than normal, that it was anonymous and that they all had a great resource to refer to when they they made up their future tense sentences later. Result!! Here is the wall they populated.
