Text Chat Without Computers

Here´s an idea I got from Larry Ferlazzo´s blog for using Mini Whiteboards. Create a "chat" conversation in the classroom without computers!

•Give each student a mini whiteboard
•Create a scenario - for example you are in a dangerous situation and shout "Help"
•Have students respond by writing a short phrase on the MWB
•Respond to one of the replies.
•Try to develop a "chat" conversation with short responses by continuing the conversation.
•Change scenarios if necessary.
•Keep the topics humourous so that it stays fun for the students.

Brilliant idea!
