Icebreakers can be an effective method for developing classroom community and introducing course content in an engaging way. Icebreakers are commonly used to create a relaxed environment that encourages participation. Putting students in conversation with each other at the beginning of a course can also lead to ongoing interaction and increased learning. Student ownership of the learning environment is also a possible outcome of utilizing icebreakers.
