About Popplet Lite

Popplet app can be used to organise thoughts and ideas in visual form using diagrams, charts and mindmaps for elementary to high school students requiring a minimalist approach to presentations. Popplet is a terrific app for iOS devices that is also available on web browsers.

Popplet Lite Review

Popplet is an excellent way for students to create graphic organizers to organize and share what they have learned! It is easy to use, allows the user to incorporate images and text, and can be exported to photos to be shared via a website. Popplet is a simple and innovative way to organize a student’s thinking by mapping their thoughts in a text, drawing, or image features. 

How students use Popplet

Students can create their own graphic organizers combining text and multimedia.  They even have the option to customize colors and layout. Students use Popplet in many curriculum areas. In a language arts lesson, students created Popplets to analyze characters in a book, incorporating images that illustrated the characteristics that they were describing. They loved all of the options in the app, such as the ability to change font size and to group "popples" together by color-coding them.

During a science unit second graders used Popplet to demonstrate what they learned about composting by adding pictures of things that should and should not go into a compost. With both age groups, it took very little instruction to get the kids using the app. In large groups, it's a great way to introduce a topic to visually display what students already know, as well as for pre-writing and brainstorming sessions. I've even taught from a popplet I created in staff development sessions rather than presenting the information in a linear fashion as is so often done. This app has become one of my favorite go-to apps for students to use to share information in a visually appealing creative way.

Classroom ideas:

  • Note down class discussion points and organise them in a way that works best for students
  • Export work to PDF or JPEG files for sharing with other students
  • Share and review online 'Popplet boards' to gather inspiration from others

Popplet as Visual Organizer

Unlike other presentation tools, Popplet allows users to connect one thought to another in the form of graphic organizers (i.e. Venn Diagrams, flow charts, tree charts, etc) that can be helpful for organizing ideas and details for papers, projects, and presentations. 

Popplet is a great mind-mapping and graphic organizer tool to aid planning and writing. Not only can you add text to your graphic organizer but you can also add a variety of sketches, graphics and multimedia. Collaborating with multiple authors is easy through a shared link as your file is stored in the cloud.
