Another new and free resource that teachers can implement in the classroom is Flipgrid. This interactive classroom (“grid”) allows teachers to post videos, facilitate discussions, pose open-ended questions, and prompts students to respond in a variety of ways all while interacting with other classmates. Think of it as a social/learning experience where students can collaborate with one another and help each other understand course content. Flipgrid also allows users to upload their content and share with others, so finding similar content is simple and effective.
Use @Flipgrid for:
📚Digital reading response
🗣Debating a topic
💭End of year reflection
➕More ideas 💡
