Online Teaching Activities

Many of us have had to embrace teaching online in 2020 with the virus making teaching in offline classrooms unrealistic.
It's perhaps, on a positive note, been a chance to learn about online teaching and the way in which things such as 'Breakout rooms' can be used to still teach and have small groups do activities in an online classroom.
I have listed 21 Free to use Icebreakers for online teaching and teachers that you might find useful if you too are doing some teaching or providing online training.
Online teaching I think is here to stay and it is actually much easier once you have taught a couple of lessons and worked out how to use the likes of Zoom, Skype or one of the other platforms.
cheers, Paul

These are some pretty useful icebreakers to make the online classrooms a little more fun and getting students more involved in the lesson. I use this creative writing game where I ask one student to type a random line, and the student next-in-line would use that first sentence as context and write another line. This goes on and on till every student has contributed at least one sentence. The idea is to create an interesting story using inputs from multiple writers.

I had not thought of the idea of icebreakers, they look like a really good way to calm down an online classroom! Also, sticking to the 21 theme, I found this blog post https://www.twinkl.pt/blog/21-online-esl-games-ready-to-go it has some great ideas for games to keep students engaged for example https://www.twinkl.com.br/resource/tg-a-39-little-red-riding-hood-motion-story-1. I would also check out TES.com, they have some interesting online resources on there too. I hope this helps :)
