I wanted to give all of my students a voice during class discussions, even shy students.

Product Use: I created a private chat room using and instructed my students to go to the room. We used this tool various times to have class discussions.

What Worked and What Didn't: Students loved being in a chat room and interacting with their peers online. The only thing that did not work is one student kept spamming the group. He continuously typed in nonsensical words and off topic remarks because he thought it was funny.

Age Group: Elementary school students
