"Communication is a skill that you can learn. It's like riding a bicycle or typing.
If you're willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life."
Brian Tracy

"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place."
George Bernard Shaw
Each team receives a set of question cards:
Student 1 holds question cards in a fan and says, “Pick a card, any card!”
Student 2 picks a card, reads the question aloud and allows 5 seconds of “think time”.
Student 3 answers the question.
Student 4 paraphrases [says in own words] and praises or coaches.
Students rotate roles one person clockwise for each new round.

"It's true many of us don't exercise our face-to-face socialization muscles as frequently as we did before the age of smartphones."

But how much structure do students need? Shouldn't there be "free time" during the day?
This can be tailored to fit classroom needs, even conflict resolution.
