Tool 6 - Using Web Tools to Promote Discussion In and Out of the Classroom

Todays Meet is a really cool tool that can be used in the classroom. This tool allows you to create basically a chat room where people given the URL can come and share ideas together. A great way to incorporate this in my classroom would to have it  as part of our center routines. The students can log on using a netbook and access the chat I have created. Once there, they can post how they feel about the topic currently being covered.

Another tool that I found very useful and interesting was the WallWisher tool. This tool would be great for staff to use. Staff could go on the Wall Wisher and write announcements that the whole staff needs to know. Each staff member can then go online and look at the wall. Here is my wall.
