Count down and stand up


Count Down (or Count up) are Stand Up (or Sit Down) are two of the most favoured activities in the early stages of developing a community of inquiry, partly because of their simplicity, and partly because they reinforce the practice of OOPSAAT (Only One Person Speaks At A Time), which is essential for effective dialogue. They also develop the sense that everybody in a community of inquiry has a part to play in building success for the whole group.
