Today while working on our Google Apps (Gmail), the students discovered (Kristalyn to be specific) that they could have a group chat. So using our Google Chromebooks we had a giant group chat. This then turned into a vocabulary review. I joined in the discussion and began asking them questions. What a great impromptu learning opportunity! I have never seen a group of students so motivated to work. I’m still buzzing with the excitement that was generated. It’s days like this that make teaching the best profession!
Awesome! Students communicating and helping each other learn while using academic language–and having fun–what could be better. Congratulations…keep the breakthroughs coming!
