Engaging with Zoom Breakout Room
“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” – Mother Teresa
Breakout rooms are an easy way to create spaces for online collaboration. Collaboration can be anything from a small group activity, checking in with teams for a team project, or creating separate topic rooms that a participant can choose to join. When using breakout rooms, have you ever considered allowing your students to choose which room they would like to enter?
Allowing students to choose a preferred room for discussion helps to provide a level of confidence in a small group discussion. Check out the video below for ideas on implementing breakout rooms that allow students to choose the room they want to enter.
Haven’t created breakout rooms yet? View our Zoom breakout room button video and Zoom Support’s Managing Breakout Rooms page to learn more about Zoom breakout rooms.
Try it out and think about creative ways you can utilize breakout rooms into your Zoom sessions. Then, come to our optional Virtual Open Lab via Zoom on Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 1:00-2:00 p.m. to practice, ask questions, etc. You can also contact us (Educational Technologist) for help. Lastly, there will be an opportunity at the end of this 4-part microlearning series to earn a badge of achievement.
