Wallwisher.com :: Words that stick | Icebreaker Activities | Scoop.it

Use Wallwisher as an online notice board maker. Discuss a new idea, share your thoughts or fears about a course, voice your opinion about a specific topic, provide feedback, etc.

 

Note to Instructors: You will want to create your wall and request that students post to it. I recommend providing specific instructions and an example.

Imagine That!

Imagine That! | Icebreaker Activities | Scoop.it

Exchange an image of yourself doing an activity that may not be obvious to your partner. Each partner creates a story to go along with his or her partner’s photo. Reveal the real story to your partner and compare stories.

 

Note to Instructors: Divide students into pairs. This can be modified by asking the students to crop their photos into a more close-up view, making it even harder to identify what is going on in the picture.

A Word Cloud

A Word Cloud | Icebreaker Activities | Scoop.it

Create a word cloud to describe aspects of who you are. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. Be descriptive and try to use uncommon words to describe yourself. Post the link to your word cloud to the discussion.

 

Note to Instructors: You may want to provide an example.

The 60-second movie trailer using Animoto

The 60-second movie trailer using Animoto | Icebreaker Activities | Scoop.it

Create a 60-second trailer to introduce yourself. Include video, photos, text, and music. Your trailer should tell about you, but you can choose any topic. You may wish to share information about your family, your favorite vacation, or your job. Post your 60-second trailer link to an introductory discussion board.

 

Note to Instructors: You may wish to post student links to their trailers in one location, such as a forum specifically for this. Or you can create an example in an announcement or make it a Course Home item to introduce yourself. You can also set the focus by requesting that students share the name of a character from a movie, TV show, book, or cartoon that he/she identifies with. Have them include why they identify with this character. Then create a discussion to have them ask their teammates questions about the characters they chose and compare them to their own characters. Are there any similarities or major differences?

An Animated Movie

An Animated Movie | Icebreaker Activities | Scoop.it

Create a text-to-movie about the assigned topic using the website. Post the link to your movie in the discussion.

 

Note to Instructors: You may want to create a short biography as an example for the class. A variation for this activity would be to ask students to create a movie based on a silly short question, such as “If you were a sports car, which car would you be?”
