I love this tool and so do my students. As a World Language teacher, it may seem obvious that a text-based tool would be useful. The best thing, howvever, is the level of engagement by my students. They love seeing their comments up on the screen in class in the target language. I can save a transcript of our conversation to post on Edmodo for later reference, and to award participation credits – ie, badges in Edmodo. A super tool!
