Popplet Virtual Bulletin Board

Popplet is a virtual bulletin board where students can  add images, text, videos, maps, and more to create a project and to show what they know.  Popplet can easily help your students to create flow charts, image galleries, graphic organizers, and mind maps.

This online application is so easy to use.  Just double click to add a "popple" box and either type or choose and image, video, or map from your computer or online resources such as Flickr, Facebook, Google Maps, or YouTube (please note, some videos from YouTube may not be appropriate).  Popplet also has some great extra features.  The creator can add other users to collaborate on a project.  Then once a project is complete the project can be embedded in a web site, blog, or wiki or posted on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks to many in my PLN that have shared this resource.  Most notably: Larry Ferlazzo, Free Technology for Teachers, and The Whiteboard Blog.

Here is an example of an embedded project:


  1. Advanced Spanish students will be creating a Popplet and collaborating with another school on the topic of travel to a Hispanic country. I have created my own Popplet to model next week before the students start their projects, rough drafts in hand, so they have the text ready to type. The missing link is the audio... I was hoping to embed a Fotobabble, a Vucaroo, or a Blabberize, but I don't know if that is possible. I have embedded two YouTube videos, and like the entire app, it is super easy. Any ideas???

  2. Sra,
    I did not see any way to embed media. You may want to see if has a forum for questions or suggestions. It would be great to be able to include embedded media, too.
