A class of preservice math and science teachers had a chance of experiencing a virtual chat in a real world. Heterogeneous groups were formed varying from 1 to 5 people in each in the class time of "Science, Technology and Society". After getting a nickname without making it public, they iniated communication via a sentence or a question with other groups. Chat papers were distributed randomly to other groups via instructor. Each group continued the communication without causing any interruption to occur. This continued for 20 minutes where they were able write at least 5-6 sentences to the other groups. Logs were collected at the end of the experience and each paper was read to the whole class. Each group learned about the other groups. Students were led to discuss the characteristics of an online chat in a real environment. This helped students to see what Turkle was stating: online identities as being constructed, distributed, fluid and shared.
