Have you tried Jamboard with your staff or students? Jamboard is a fun and free tool that can be used to build community, brainstorm and "go digital" with thinking routines or vocabulary activities.
In our summer SIOP session #5, teachers had fun creating "Group Summer Resumes" with memes, photos and post-its to capture the good and the bad of summer break. Later in the session, teachers chose grade level/content lesson examples, and used Jamboard to sort great strategies they found in breakout rooms with colleagues.
