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.
A great many popplets are created and shared every single day. A quick look at Popplet’s very own open forum Public Popplets will reveal that hundreds of Popplet users choose to share their work publicly.
Public Popplets is the place to go when you are looking for ideas or inspiration. It is an excellent resource for educators. A place where the work their fellows and their students can be found. But Popplet isn’t just for education: a few minutes browsing in Public Popplets will reveal the enormous scope and variety of Popplet’s uses and users. Popplet work from all over the globe, in many languages, covering every subject imaginable.
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
Welcome to a brand new set of Popplet Tutorials. We have listened to your requests and over the next few weeks, we are going to do our very best to make the Popplet experience more accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Let’s begin at the beginning, with every Popplet’s essential element: the popple.
The basic building blocks of popplets are called popples. They are to Popplet what the humble cell or the mighty atom are to the physical world: with no popples, there can be no popplets. Fortunately, popples are much easier to understand than cells and atoms, and are regularly produced by the under-fives. Creating and working popples is simple:
Popplet is a mind-mapping graphic organizer which can be used to visualize and expand pretty much anything you can think of: a business plan, a class activity, a math project, a map of the stars…We are fairly certain at this point that there is little that exists which cannot be captured, organized and made more presentable by displaying it on a Popplet board.
A bold claim, but we have we proof! Thanks to the Popplet community, who constantly share their thoughts, work, and creations with the world. So, if you have an idea and are looking for some help with it, or if you are searching for an idea, we hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration in the places below.
Welcome to Top Popplet! We choose one of our favorite popplets, say why we think it’s great, and share it here so that everyone can see just how great it really is. Our hope is that Popplet people everywhere will be inspired to similar feats of popplet excellence.
The creative and industrious Popplet community are selfless in their efforts, sharing thousands of examples of their fine work every week. Numerous blogs, a multitude of Twitter and Facebook posts, and our very own Public Popplets section mean we are completely spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing Top Popplets. Nevertheless, choose we must, and this week we choose What RIGHT Means To You.
Who can see my Popplet? – a frequently asked question, especially by educators and parents. The answer is that it’s entirely up to you. If a popplet makes you so proud that you want to share it with a wider audience, then you can. On the other hand, if you would like a little privacy, or even total privacy, you can have that too.
Popplet features a range privacy levels that let you manage who can see your popplets, and how. Safe and simple, like all things Popplet. The different levels are outlined below:
“for your eyes only”, make this popplet private, a popplet’s default privacy setting
“need to know”, make this popplet public, but don’t show in public popplets
“me, you…everybody”, make this popplet public, and show in public popplets
Welcome to the round up of the best Popplets shared on our Twitter, Facebook and Public Popplet pages in the month of February. If you’re searching for ideas and inspiration, or if you just want to know what Popplet is all about, then this is the place to be.
Luke Skywalker’s Letter
Not so long ago, in a galaxy not so far away (Wales!), a novice in Mr Tilley’s Primary School Classroom had an idea: “find the droid BB8 and save the the universe!”. In his quest to locate this loyal droid, a young classroom Jedi named Luke Skywalker gained intimate knowledge of the key features of the little known and almost long forgotten art of letter writing. Brandishing only The Force and Popplet, and under the instruction of Master Tilley, a beacon of hope for all the inhabitants of the Galaxy was created in the form of a popplet. This symbol will long serve as a fine example to those who wish to learn something of the old ways of communicating. May the force be with you young Luke, the citizens of Planet Popplet send you their gratitude. Continue reading →

Rees Parent Technology Night
So impressed were we with the Rees Parent Technology Night popplet, that we were especially careful in uncovering its true creator just in case such masterly work be misaligned. The creator is no other than Paul Baez, experienced educator and Principal of Rees Elementary School, Houston. This Poster/Flyer type Popplet really is a beautifully presented, bilingual bonanza of ideas, the sum of which is an enticing invitation to the Rees Parent Technology Night, where parents are being asked to get to know the technology their children are learning with. Essential information in text popples, QR codes linking to Youtube videos making it interactive (fabulous!) and if that wasn’t enough, there are prizes too! Great work, nicely done. We wish we went to this school. Thanks Paul, we hope the Parent’s Night goes well.
POPPLET TIP: Finished popplets can be saved as pdf, jpeg or png files and they can be sent by email or printed for display or distribution. You can make perfect Popplet flyers or Popplet posters for an event, or to display your Popplet work.Continue reading →
