Popplet is a virtual spider web. Students can work on their own or with others through popplet’s website. Not only can students brainstorm with words, but they can also insert images or videos which are relevant. Popplet allows you to move each box around and create connections with one another. This could be a great tool to help students organize their ideas for writing or making connections between ideas.
Because students are able to share, popplet can also be used for group projects or even as a ‘parking lot’ in the classroom. Students can help each other learn more by adding comments or videos to help their peers. Popplet is a great tool for collaborative learning. Each box also names the student who leaves a comment making it possible for teachers to track student participation.
