Last week I shared an article about using social media with parents, written by Clark Rodeffer. At times this is also appropriate for in the classroom. At other times we want class discussions and comments less public, but possibly still electronic.
Have you been looking for a way for students to ask questions or make comments without interrupting the lecture, movie or presentation? Do your students have access to an electronic device?
TodaysMeet (https://todaysmeet.com/) may be the answer you are looking for. TodaysMeet is a chat room, a meeting space, a platform for learning. Each post is limited to 140 characters to help keeps comments and questions concise.
TodaysMeet is free and does not require a log in. This is a great way to share information that can be referenced at a later time as well.
