So this being the case, there was a learning curve for the students because some are less mature than others and would have a tendency to post a variety of things on the bulletin board. Most comments, however, were benign. The advantage here is that it is my board and I can and sometimes do go through and erase their posts.
So, the practical application is that we use this in place of any whiteboard in the classroom and anything I would write gets placed on the Padlet board. Students and parents can access the bulletin board from home and see what they missed for the day or what we learned for the day. I definitely recommend Padlet but understand that students who have issues being mature or those that simply don't have filters may post to their hearts desire and cause a disruption in the classroom.
