Graffiti Walls can be used in both face-to-face settings and virtual spaces. A graffiti wall allows participants to share brief comments or questions and creates a visual representation of feedback and overall engagement. Virtual spaces like Google Jamboard provide an opportunity to collect quick feedback via a virtual graffiti wall. Virtual sticky notes or comments can easily be rearranged or grouped to highlight common themes.
