Padlet to Brainstorm our Rules 1


I’m about three weeks into my first year as a Technology Integration Specialist and I think I’m beginning to feel a bit more settled into the new position. One of the first things I wanted to do with the kids was to have them help me brainstorm rules for the computer lab and rules for using iPads. I had the Kindergarteners and First Graders help me brainstorm rules for the lab and the Second Graders helped with rules for the iPads. All of these suggestions were collected onto a Padlet wall organized by class.

The Kindergarten students video taped themselves saying a rule. Here is an example, click on the videos to view them.

The First Grade students worked in partnerships and typed their rules:

The Second Grade Students worked individually and could type as many rules as they could think of:

I’m going to compile a list of rules based on these and they will be the rules for the computer lab and our school’s iPad rules for the year!

    I like the way you involve them in the process, so the rules will feel more like their rules, too, not just rules you imposed on them. Getting them to take some ownership of the quality of the learning environment is a huge part of classroom management. Once again, you show what a seasoned educator you are!
