ChatStep: A New Online Chat Room

We recently tried a new online chat room called ChatStep, which was recommended by my teammate Brooke.  After reading a Time for Kids “GreenTips” article (for Earth Day), I had my students respond to my prompt “What can YOU do to be more green?”

All I had to do to set up the room was give it a name, enter my name and click “Create.”  Then I linked the room to my class website for my students to easily access.  

If you've ever used Today's Meet, ChatStep has a very similar format.  It does have an option to add images though, which I think is a really cool feature.  

I would use this site again similarly to how I've used Today's  Meet—for  class discussions, exit slips, and reading response.  How might you use ChatStep?
