    I’ve created and used scavenger hunts with Padlet with several groups (after being introduced to it by playmeo). It’s an awesome activity – super engaging for small breakout rooms in Zoom.

    Hi there,

    I was excited to see this activity offered with support. Before I purchase the padlet subscription (for a month rather than a year), I was wondering if it’s possible to plan and organize everything and then host the scavenger hunt all within a month’s time before access to the padlet runs out. Can anyone give me a time frame of what to expect? Thank you!

      Michael, you ask a good question. I think it’s possible to do everything from within the month, but if you are concerned, I would suggest that you could do a lot of pre-work in advance, eg plan which challenges you will use, their sequence, their passwords, create all of the images you wanted to upload, etc. Then, you could use your month’s registration to not only become acquainted with padlet but build the whole event. Reach out if you ever need help!

    Hi Mark, Great content. Thank you. Have you run into any issues with organizations that block access to these kinds of websites? I have a few companies I work with that have blocked sites like Flippity.

      Hey Greg, thanks for your comment. No, I am not aware of the padlet technology being blocked by certain companies. The only place I do know coverage is patchy is in China (which is a whole other kettle of fish.) What’s the issue with Flippity? Is it because it requires access to Google Drives/Docs?
