    Miming games work surprisingly well on Zoom, as the person who is miming can see what they are doing and so better work out why other people don’t understand. It should also hopefully help persuade students to still use gestures while in online classes, and their own online meetings, and to watch the other people’s images more carefully instead of checking their emails at the same time. It’s also a good idea in classes where students have to wear masks and so are losing some ability to communicate with facial expressions and should use their bodies more to make up for it.
