Popplets can be found anywhere on the planet. We have proof: when Popplet has issues (everyone has issues sometimes), we are quickly able to resolve them because Popplet people let us know about them in multiple languages. Popplet’s ubiquitousness is known to us for other more positive reasons of course, one of which is Popplet’s strong presence on the internet and social media.
A quick Google search will reveal the wealth of Popplet articles and images published every day. Popplets can also be found on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. For a constant stream of great Popplet ideas, however, we suggest you check out Popplet on Twitter.
Educators and students of all disciplines and every level use Twitter. Writers, artists, and other creatives use Twitter. Entrepreneurs, business people, and other professionals use Twitter. In fact, there really is no way to define a Twitter user – people from every walk of life use Twitter for different things. What’s important to us, is that a great many people use Twitter to publish their Popplet work.
Of course, we keep a close eye on Twitter, but sometimes we are so impressed by what we see, that a simple retweet doesn’t do a Popplet idea justice. So we thought we’d bring some of the best of Popplet Twitter to you.
We have all done it. Spent precious time creating a magnificent piece of Popplet wizardry on the iPad, or quickly saved a few important ideas on the Popplet iPhone app only to later discover, while sitting down to take a look at our popplets on the computer, that our hard work has gone! Breathe! We check our iOS devices, and there it is. Question is: Why can’t I see my Popplet online?
We have been receiving a lot of questions about using Popplet on iOS devices recently – not at all surprising since most of us access Popplet on the iPad. So, we thought we’d publish a series of short tutorials to clarify a few things.
One question that has come up recently is: What’s the difference between all the tabs I can see when I open Popplet on my iPad, iPhone, or iPod? Let’s take a look, shall we?
Popplet is a mind-mapping application and graphic organizer that helps students think and learn visually. With Popplet learners can capture facts, thoughts, ideas in different ways and immediately connect and visualize the relationships between them.
Popular with teachers and students, Popplet frequently makes an appearance in the ten favorite classroom apps lists that educators share on social media with their colleagues and fellows. Why does Popplet make it into the top ten EdTech apps so often?
Fall may fast be approaching in more northern parts, but in the Popplet world, Spring has definitely arrived. In classrooms all over the globe, with blatant disregard for month and season, Popplet users old and new continue to impress with their unbounded creativity.
Fortunately, the Popplet community are a generous bunch, and we have harvested the fruits of their labors and gathered them all together for a feast!
“Husband, Dad, Son, Brother, Teacher, Coach, Learner, Catalyst, Collaborator, Creator, Contributor, EdTecher, DIYer, Tinkerer, Golfer, Exerciser, Gardener”…. and if that weren’t enough, there’s a whole lot more to dynamic educator and Popplet aficionado Craig Badura.
We started to get to know Craig from his quality Twitter posts. However, when he commented one day that there was nothing that you couldn’t do with Popplet, we knew we had to speak to this man! Here’s what he had to say.
Could you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do?

Digital technology is definitely one of those areas where choice abounds, and even Popplet, best known for its clean simplicity and user-friendliness, comes in a few shapes and sizes – but not too many.
This choice exists so you can get the most out of Popplet because not everybody uses Popplet the same way. Plans and versions vary as to cost, device, and features, but don’t worry, choosing the correct Popplet plan is not at all daunting, it’s quite simple.
Summer vacation in some places is coming to an end, and educators, parents, and students are looking forward to a fresh academic year: new classes, new friends, new subjects. They will also be researching which apps and technology to put in their classrooms, homes and digital backpacks.
Deciding on which new digital technologies to use or purchase can be daunting because of the vast number of educational apps on the market. However, if you’re looking for a seasoned, tried-and-tested, all-rounder app for all subjects, then keep it simple. Popplet is one of the most versatile and useful tools available to educators and learners and it continues proving itself as the go-to app for any subject:
Literacy – reading and writing skills
Numeracy – simple and complex activities
Science – Chemistry, Physics, Biology…
The Environment – pollution, environmental change
Technology, Computing, Robotics and Automation
History – timelines, historical events and profiles
The Cosmos is vast, maybe more vast than the humble human mind can possibly imagine. Yet, as the celebrated scientist, Carl Sagan poignantly pointed out in his epic speech: this speck of cosmic dust, the pale blue dot that humankind call home is all that we have. So, we really ought to take good care of it.
“The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.” – Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot
Knowledge of our home planet and its place in the Universe is the fundamental basis of all scientific study. Topics and discussions centered on The Earth’s history and its progress are common in education. Now the big question is how our planet will cope with the impact of what we are doing to it. Climate change, pollution, species extinction, overpopulation… all are part of a long and worrying list of how human behavior is already destroying our one and only home.
The international sport of football – often referred to as soccer in the United States so as to avoid confusion with the type of football where a non-spherical ball is used (among other differences) – has come a long, long way since the first international match was played in the Scottish city of Glasgow in 1872. Scotland took on England and although the result was a disappointing goalless draw, the sport of football, often referred to as “The Beautiful Game”, was already well on the way to becoming the most popular the world has ever known.
Football’s grandest tournament, The FIFA World Cup, is the greatest sporting event on Earth, and it is held in different venues every four years and has been since 1930 when it was held and won by the host nation Uruguay. This year is a World Cup year, and the 2018 World Cup is being played out in Russia at the time of writing. Only 32 teams take part in the final tournament and with the exception of the host nation, they have all had to qualify from a starting pool of 211 nations – that’s why it’s held every four years! Things are just getting interesting, and we have a few Popplet ideas based on this competition that can be used by sports fans everywhere, whatever their passion.
