Public Popplets: Ten Of The Best Popplets Of All Time

If you are searching for ideas or inspiration for your own work, or you want to see what type of results Popplet can produce then check out Public Popplets.

Public Popplets is available to anyone who has signed up for a free Popplet account on the Popplet homepage. It is where people who use Popplet choose to share their work openly, allowing others to access it and make use of it.

Let’s take a quick look at what Popplet users have been sharing. Multiple languages, the global nature of Popple, and the sheer scope of the subject matter meant we had no problem at all in bringing together ten of the best Popplet ideas.

Taking Care of Myself

How can I take care of myself? Asked and answered in this great popplet from Brooke. Color-coded, cool images, pertinent information, video…it speaks for itself!

Types of Reactions – Science

This is one for the scientists and has been one of the most viewed popplets of all time! A clear, concise explanation of types of chemical reactions. Simple visuals, video, and free of wordy explanations – science and Popplet are all about observation.

Air and Weather

Everybody is interested in the weather. Even in places where the climate stays more or less constant the whole year round, folks watch, read about, or listen to weather reports. Of course, for many things, knowing weather conditions is essential: sailing, flying, going on holiday…but wouldn’t it be interesting to know more?

Festivals in Poland: An Annual Cultural Timeline

Popplet boards contain all sorts of information, organized in many different ways. This hugely popular record of Poland’s annual festivals is presented timeline fashion, a format normally reserved for history popplets. But here we have it – a whole year of culture on a single popplet. An easily adaptable activity for any country or region.

Parlez-vous français? – Languages

“verbo-tonale: tableaux de base” is an exploration of French pronunciation. It appears complex. However, for students and teachers of the French language, it is a highly useful resource…and what a resource it is. It makes use of links to direct viewers to websites of interest. It also makes use of popplet’s very own library/filing system Popplet Linker. Look closely and you will see the linked popples above the center image. Each of these popples is a link to another piece of this grand work.

Lesson Plan: -ed Endings

Here we have a popplet that demonstrates how a lesson plan can be visualized and executed. Educators often use Popplet to plan their lessons. This ESL / TESOL lesson for English learners will hopefully illuminate one of the many baffling aspects of the English language that learners encounter – the pronunciation of “ed” at the end of some verbs and adjectives. Easily adaptable for any lesson, or any plan whatsoever.

Agujeros Negros (Black Holes)

Despite its three, possibly even multi-dimensional nature, the Universe and the study of heavenly bodies remain a firm favorite for Popplet users. It’s difficult to imagine the size of the universe, and some of the science can sometimes seem a bit beyond the capacity of us mere mortals. Take black holes for example: what is a black hole really? If you’re feeling mystified, this excellent visual on the matter will definitely help. Some subjects just need to be visualized, and that’s what Popplet does best.

Personajes Frankenstein (Frankenstein: Characters)

Popplet finds many uses in literacy, especially in learning. There are a great many activities, mostly covering core curriculum goals for all ages. Character analysis is just one literary popplet activity. This Frankenstein character study, which provides portraits and information about all the primary and secondary players in Mary Shelley’s classic tale of a man’s attempts to control nature, is as fine an example as we have seen. It’s also been viewed and shared numerous times.

Province of Quebec

Geography and History combine is this detailed presentation of the economic, social, cultural, and territorial aspects which formed this well-known and highly respected region of Canada. Amazing attention to detail, the inclusion of excellent visuals as images, and top-notch organization make for a compelling and popular visual.

Las Plantas (Plants)

This beautiful popplet,  detailing so elegantly and simply the lifecycle, morphology and other aspects of plant life has been republished many, many times. Its use of clear diagrams and videos make it an excellent learning resource. Click, see, grow!

When a popplet has been shared in Public Popplets it is available for all to benefit from. Share directly from Public Popplets to social media as well as links in messages and emails. With Popplet’s embed code any popplet can be added to blogs and web pages – some popplets are very popular and can help drive traffic to your page.

How to Make a Popplet Public and Share it on Public Popplets

All newly created popplets are “private” by default, so Popplet authors need to choose if they want to have their work made available on Public Popplets. Most don’t share publicly at all, others share images of their work on social media. If you’re ready to share your work with the Popplet world, here’s how:

  • First, make sure you have a Popplet account. You can sign up by visiting the Popplet homepage, select log in, then click Sign up, and follow the instructions. When you’re done, you’ll have ten complimentary Popplet boards forever.
  • Next, create a new popplet or open on from your dashboard. We’re going to share Baby Names on Public Popplets, which is precisely what it says it is!
  • Then, when you’re popplet is open select the brown share button in the top right of the popplet.
  • Now you will see all of sharing options available, there are a lot and most of them are self-explanatory. However, to simply make your Popplet “public” and include in Public Popplets begin by clicking on make popplet public:
  • Finally, choose make this popplet public, and share in public popplets from the window that appears and save.

You’re popplet is now available in Public Popplets, and anyone with a Popplet account can view it and share the link and embed code. Anyone with the link can view the popplet, so that means pretty much everybody!

More About Public Popplets

How do I access Public Popplets?

Easy! From your Popplet dashboard select the Public Popplets tab. From there, you can choose to view the most recent or most popular popplets:

Can others share my popplet?

Yes, they can share the link. Other users can also immediately share your work on Twitter and Facebook. They can even embed your work on a website or blog post using the popplet embed code. Popular popplets will drive traffic to a website! Will other users be able to edit my work if I share it in Public Popplets? No, to do this you, as the Popplet’s author would need to add another person as a collaborator and specifically grant editing permissions.

Why can’t I see my work in Public Popplets?

Check that you have correctly followed the steps above. If you have then your popplet is in Public Popplets. Popplets in the “most recent” tab can only be viewed in date order. So, if you have recently made a popplet that you created at an earlier date public, then that’s where you will find it.

Can I remove a popplet from Public Popplets?

Of course, if you are the owner of the popplet board. Simply select one of the other two options in the make public window.

Can another Popplet user remove my popplet from Public Popplets? 

Only if you, as the owner, have given them editing permissions (see above). Or, if another user finds your work “inappropriate”, they can let Popplet know by clicking the report inappropriate content button. The Popplet will be removed from Public Popplets and an email sent to the popplet’s owner. If this happens to your popplet, respond to the email and we will investigate.

Inspired Popplet Ideas: Recipe Popplets – Quesada Pasiega

Every now and then when we are searching for inspiration for the blog, we go foraging through Public Popplets: the completely free and entirely accessible collection of Popplet creativity, graciously shared by the global Popplet community. With hundreds of popplets shared daily, we never leave empty-handed.

It is possible, that at the time of our most recent visit to Public Popplets, it was close to lunchtime. Whatever the reason, the work that really caught our collective eye – and maybe our collective stomach – was the delectable “Quesada”, a recipe popplet, courtesy of Gabi, which we came across in Public Popplet’s most popular section.

Dr. Popplet: Health, Happiness and Well-being

A good education is not restricted to achieving competence in literacy, math, and science; there is another set of equally essential life skills related to health, happiness, and well-being that we need to learn and respect if we are to become shiny happy citizens of the world. Having a healthy body and a sound mind is about as good as it gets these days, and those who are fortunate enough to maintain both are surely some of the planet’s happiest people.

Like other good things, there’s a great deal of common sense involved in healthy living. Lessons about diet, exercise and taking care of body and mind, are as essential as learning to read and write. Popplet itself is no stranger to the doctor’s surgery: when Popplet was very young, it had no conception of how just how popular it would become. This caused some “health” problems such as overstretched servers, sign-in issues, and general stress. Now, we’re happy to report that Popplet is following doctor’s orders, and is in pretty good shape.

We are glad to report that the Popplet community is also healthy and doing well! We frequently see popplets about how to keep up health, happiness, and well-being, and what happens if you don’t. Popplet is used in schools, colleges and by and medical professionals all over the world. Here is a small sample of some of their work.

Do You Speak Popplet?

With the exception of Chinese (Mandarin), English is the world’s most understood language. Unlike Chinese, approximately two-thirds of those who communicate regularly in English, are using it as a second language.  The idea for Popplet was conceived somewhere around the New York area, so English seemed like the natural choice for the app and for our blog. However, the global reach of Popplet and the incredibly diverse nature of our user base has surpassed all expectations. What does it all mean?

Popplet’s popularity and recognition initially began in the school system of the USA, however, Popplet almost immediately earned a global reputation as a quality mind-mapping tool with many uses. Popplets created in a multitude of languages began appearing on Twitter, Facebook, and on websites and blog posts from all over the world. Chatter was truly multilingual! Popplet quickly gained traction in areas other than education: business, design, genealogy, medicine and many more. To meet this multicultural explosion, we brought on a multilingual support team and quickly added a language feature to facilitate the addition of languages with non-Latin based script such as Japanese, Korean, and Hebrew to popplets.

Thousands of popplets are shared openly every week: in Public Popplets, Twitter, Facebook Pinterest, and on personal and community blogs. Our support teams and technical staff also receive thousands of emails and messages: many of these Popplets and messages are in languages we know and understand, more than occasionally though, we are still surprised.

To give you some idea of worldly-wise our humble app has become, we thought we’d share a few international Popplet creations.
