Idea Tag as a Brainstorming Activity – we are sure there are different names for this brainstorming technique, but we like to call it Idea Tag. The idea is that you give students or participants some categories to brainstorm into and then they tag off adding ideas, as one person is writing the other is thinking. This can be done with 2, 3, or 4 students.
