Word of the Week : Troll


A troll is someone who posts a provocative message on a newsgroup, forum or message board with the intention to start an argument. We all know at least one of these personally – they sit behind the safety of their own screen and watch the drama unfold.

In the past, I could design, print and pin a poster in my classroom. Now my noticeboard is in the form of a Facebook group and the struggle is real to convince two-hundred plus students to not only join the group, but also to regularly visit the site. The idea of the CAT Word of the Week poster was born.

Every week, I will release one poster on my Facebook group, and, because CAT teachers love sharing, I will make it print-friendly for my classroom-based colleagues and will be shared here on the Tech Teachers site.
