Summer Professional Development

I like big conversation and I cannot lie...

Engaging all learners is a challenge educators face daily. Backchanneling allows each student to have a voice in the classroom. It is real time online conversations alongside live presentations or through independent work time. A backchannel lets participants ask questions, discuss what is being presented, share links and reflect on their learning. It can be used in any subject area in which you would use discussion, brainstorming or exit tickets. The possibilities are endless!
