Final week I bought an attention-grabbing query from a reader named Chuck. I am undecided that my reply or the query has broad attraction, however I discovered it attention-grabbing so I made a video about it. Chuck’s query was as follows:
I’ve been struggling to discover a device that I can use to do Philosophical Chairs in a digital classroom. The dialogue/debate half is not any downside, what I want is a device the place college students can transfer an avatar or an image of themselves to a sure space of the display to point their place on a subject. All college students have to see the identical display however the one merchandise they will transfer is their avatar/image and no person else’s. If Philosophical Chairs then you’ll instantly see what I’m speaking about. Do you’ve any concepts for a device or a platform that might do that?
I did not know of a device that was made particularly for internet hosting on-line philosophical chairs actions, however I did suppose that utilizing Google’s Jamboard is one doable resolution.
It is essential to notice that Jamboard will not stop a pupil from transferring a classmate’s avatar so it is a resolution that can solely work if you will get your youngsters to respect the principles of the exercise. If that is an issue on your college students then you definitely may wish to strive utilizing Padlet as advised by Rushton Hurley in our newest episode of Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions & Share Cool Stuff.
