Managing Padlets

Posted on: January 30, 2019

I use Padlet a lot. In 2017 and 2018, I reflected on how I integrate them into my courses and workshops.

I use lots of Padlet spaces as a result. As an early adopter, I have almost 300 free Padlet spaces. This month I almost used up that quota.

One reason I use so many Padlets is my promise to course and workshop participants to keep their notes archived (unlike most LMS). The readiness to learn often happens outside and after a course or workshop, so I keep their externalised thoughts and reflections alive.

But since I have to get some spaces back, I have opted to export some Padlets as images (PNGs) and save them in a shared Google Photos album. As these images are no longer editable, I plan on doing this to Padlets that are from 2018 or older.

This is going to take quite a bit of time as I have several years of archived Padlets. But it will be a good investment to “declutter”. This is not quite Marie Kondo’s method of throwing away what does not “spark joy”, but it is joyful effort for an anal-retentive organiser like me!
