Five Simple Discussion Tools in your Google Toolbox

One of the great things about information technology is how it can help expand understanding through the use of different tools for discussion. No longer does the conversation have to be limited by time (the bell) or place (your class’s four walls). These tools give people more time to think deeply about something in order to generate a thoughtful idea or response, allow the more quiet students a chance to have their ideas heard, and can enlarge the pool of participants (e.g. all four of your classes can have one discussion vs. each class having a separate one)
