Now you are aware of where to find resources for practical activities, we would like you to share what you have found with the rest of the group.

We’d like you to share some ideas first before we pick one to look at in more detail next week.

We’d like you to post your resources or links onto the course Padlet Wall. This is an online pin-board which is an effective way to create and present many different types of resources. You can also upload photos or videos of physical resources you have found. You do not need to register an account to post to Padlet, but please do add your name to anything you post. Guidance on how to use Padlet.

Share your resources

  1. Search for and choose 3 resources to explore that relate to your professional context.
  2. Post each resource on the Padlet Wall for this task.
  3. Take a few minutes to look at what other learners have shared. If you like something you have found, post a reply onto the Padlet post with a comment where you could use the resource in your own volunteering. If you are not sure about the validity of a resource, can you pose a question to help the person who found that resource reconsider?

Please do not upload photos of students, as parental consent is required. Please respect others’ confidentiality and privacy at all times.

GDPR statement: Please see Padlet’s terms and conditions and privacy policy. Your course progress and FutureLearn profile will not be affected, whether or not you decide to take part in this task. For the purposes of any personal information submitted to Padlet, Padlet will be the Data Controller, not FutureLearn.
