Padlet For American Literature Analysis of Henry David Thoreau

One of our high school English teachers, Miss Rheingans, approached me about using a tool that would allow students to interpret a Henry David Thoreau quotation after finding one on the internet.  We discussed using Explain Everything due to its many audio or visual features.  She introduced them to Pinterest to find colorful pictures with the Thoreau quotes.  They added the quotes to their explanation.

She decided to use Chromebooks instead and had students create a Padlet wall.  Padlet, formally Wallwisher, can provide written comments with or without pictures.  Instead of creating my own video tutorial Richard Byrne at Free Tech For Teachers created a great video tutorial that can describe the details.
