Flipgrid: Where Do Teachers Go In the Summer??
I have a new tool for the classroom that I can’t wait to use – Flipgrid! It’s a virtual bulletin board where students post video responses to a question or prompt. All the rage at ISTE in June, my social media feeds have been flooded with Flipgrids from fellow educators.
Similar to Padlet (another favorite!), FlipGrid provides a wide range of teacher controls that allows for a moderated virtual conversation between students in video form. I love that it pushes students to work in video format, while maintaining a time limit for each entry. It’s a great platform for helping students
- collect their thoughts and phrase their main ideas succinctly,
- consider their surroundings and environment when recording, and
- engage with classmates in a teacher-moderated social media platform.
From summer reading reflections, to reporting from field trips, the possibilities for integration of this new tech tool into the classroom are endless!
I couldn’t resist sending out my own Flipgrid Response: Blogging & Reading at the beach:
So check out this Flipgrid and share your favorite place to unwind & relax, or engage in some summer PD. And while you’re there, hear about the exciting experiences of our colleagues this summer!
