When 9th Grade humanities simulated illegal arm deals on the world stage, they needed a way to have covert meetings between different arms dealers, NGOs and national governments.  The use of iMessage enabled them to carry on these secret negotiations without having to pass physical messages back and forth.

iMessages (Messages on OSX) can be used to communicate in a variety of activities for different classes.  The ease of setting up different chat rooms between users and the ability to export chat histories makes this a powerful tool in your classroom.  And of course, it is seamless across your devices and students enjoy using as a communication tool while at home (see tweet above).
