Draw it Live is a free application that allows you to work together with other people to draw in real time; the collaborative drawing space is accompanied by a text chat area. You simply create a whiteboard and share its URL to allow other people to join in.
You could dictate, via chat, what students should draw, or you could describe what you and they draw as items appear for comprehensible input. Alternatively, your students could work on a collaborative drawing, using the text chat to communicate about what they’re doing in the target language.
This application is available at http://www.drawitlive.com
