Get debates going in and outside the classroom with the itslearning discussions tool.
Shy students are often more likely to express themselves in online discussions and debates. The discussion in itslearning are string-based, meaning that students answer each other's contributions – just as they do in a verbal debate – and because the discussions are saved, students can refer back to them when they want to revise the subject.
If the teacher decides, students can post anonymously in discussions and debates. Students can also select an avatar (an icon) to make their posts more personal and recognisable.
Lyndsey Dudaniec, Head of ITC at Accrington Academy in the UK, gives an examples of how she uses discussions in her teaching.
