Web-based chat platforms have been around for years, but are gaining a new foothold in classrooms as educators look for ways to incorporate technology into the curriculum. The immediacy of the technology gives students a direct connection with the instructor as well as classmates. Web chats promote real-time collaboration and discussion that can lead to deeper processing of class material. Integrating this technology does, however, require intentional planning on the part of the teacher. Preparation should include establishing rules of online etiquette and a process for orderly turn-taking, so that everyone gets a chance to participate.
