Use a forum for class discussion

I used boardest.com to collaborate across schools on a discussion of a taught text. This is a small site with an educational section that makes it more school-friendly than the likes of Reddit and Voat. I gave some simple instructions and let the students take over.

I’ve found this useful for kickstarting revision. The upvotes/downvotes might not work with every class (though I’ve found them a motivating element). If this is the case, Google Classroom discussions might work. Alternatively, you could investigate corkboard apps like Padlet  , Spaaze and note.ly, or collaborative mind map apps like Mindmup or Popplet.
