A Platform for Partnership: A Technology Review of the Padlet sharing platform.

Tom Lowe, Owen Humphrey

Abstract


Since technology permeates every aspect of contemporary life, just navigating Higher Education (HE) in the 21st century makes you, to an extent, ‘tech savvy’. However, when looking to technology to assist student/staff partnerships, colleagues need to take their practice beyond Microsoft Office, social media and Photoshop.

During a student/staff partnership research project, a student and a higher education professional used the online platform Padlet as their selected medium for collaboration, in order to replicate such of Healy’s principles of partnership as inclusivity, reciprocity, trust and community (Healy et al., 2014).
