What is the Appreciation Chatterfall check-out? 💛

This is a great check-out activity for quickly creating warm and fuzzies in a large group.

To create an appreciation chatterfall, have everyone type an appreciation message in the chat for something that happened during your session—but don’t hit send yet!

Once your timer expires, have everyone publish their chat message at once.

Then, sit back and watch the appreciation chatterfall messages flow.

How to use this template

  1. Invite everyone to head over to the chat and write an appreciation message for another participant, for an idea or insight, for the facilitator, or for the session as a whole—anything they appreciated in this session.
  2. But here's the trick: they don't press "Send" after typing. They wait for your signal to send the messages.
  3. Set a timer for 3 minutes and tell them that the end of the time is the signal that they can hit "Send".
  4. Invite them to take 2 minutes to browse and read the appreciation messages in the chat before ending the session.

Enjoy the appreciation chatterfall. 💛
