This post is a combination of my most recent Practical Ed Tech Newsletter and one that I published last fall. Whether you’re using an online platform to conduct icebreakers and exit ticket activities or you’re just reading the questions aloud to your class (AKA the Old Fashioned Way), I hope these help.
