Teaching Tip Tuesday - Yo Teach!

Any time you want to check for student understanding and gauge your students or whatever audience you may be working with, a backchannel chat is often a good way to do so.  One of our all-time favorites is gone, but now you have YO Teach! 
Set up is easy.  Create a room by giving it a title and a description.  To make it private, hide it and enable a Password for entry.  Then share that 

Then share that unique code to your students or whoever it is that you want to use the backchannel room. They simply enter the Pin and they are in.   
Now you have an easy way to check for student understanding or feedback,  Maybe assign one of you students as the moderator and they can read questions or comments on the backchannel while you are teaching.
