This week’s teaching tip is an online site called “Padlet” that you could use to collect pupils’ opinions on a topic before, during or after a lesson.

1. Once you get onto the Padlet site, it is very easy to use.

2. Once you have set up the page, you can share the URL with the pupils. Ideally this should be password protected to make sure it is secure.

3.  Pupils then post on the site. They can also post links to reading or upload pictures to further establish and justify their point.

This tip was shared by Scott and if you want to see an example of how this has recently been used in his lesson, then please use the following link

Plenaries on a Plate

This week’s teaching tip is another plenary/mini plenary selector. The idea is that you choose one of the coloured circles from the second page and this will take you to a different mini-plenary idea.

Some of the circles are knowledge recall, but others ask the pupils to apply their knowledge as well. It is obviously worth having a look at the circles beforehand, so you might have a better idea of which to choose.

If you have a teaching tip, then please do email it to me for ciculation.

Thank you to Hannah for sending this week’s tip. We will load this into the teacher folder that will soon be appearing on your desktop.
