Option 1: Using a Collaborative Word Wall - Padlet and Digipad

Padlet is a free tool that lets you create word walls. With the free account, you have a limit of three walls. Recently, we discovered a new open-source tool called Digipad (created especially for education). With this tool, you can create unlimited word walls. You also have access to other types of tools on the main website called La Digitale. This page presents Padlet as a model, but you can do the same things with Digipad.
