Tech Tip Thursday: Yo Teach! Website
A lot of people were sad when Today's Meet website ended, but no worries, there is another website similar.
Yo Teach! let's you title your room and password protect your room, as well. It can also let you have admin rights.
What is different about this backchannel website?
*It let's students DRAW
*It let's students TYPE
*It let's students bring in PICTURES
*Teachers can share a URL or QR code to access the chat
According to an Edutopia article by Beth Holland, a backchannel chat in the classroom is "a digital conversation that runs concurrently with a face-to-face activity -- provides students with an outlet to engage in conversation."
