Here's How - Communication
There are many icebreakers to use in the online classroom.
Ideally an initial introduction helps foster a friendly and collaborative tone to your class, and sets the stage for further discussions.
Student introductions also provide a pedagogical advantage in that they allow you the opportunity to:
- Assess student prior knowledge in your subject area.
- Identify any student specific needs or learning styles.
- Set the stage for the first topic in your course.
