Exemplar thumbnail


This graded icebreaker activity uses Padlet as a way for students to get to know each other the first week of the course. In this introductory 'Meet and Greet' students create a post, with an optional picture, and share a little about themselves. This includes their pronouns, what they like to be called, as well as future goals. The students are asked to respond to their peers and the instructor also adds a post on the Padlet to get the conversations started.
