FlipGrid for Education
FlipGrid has been a game-changer. This app combines everything kids like: making videos, social media type format (but safe), it gives a voice to EVERYONE. If you are worried that it will be too scary for your shy/quiet kids....don’t. Students can draw a picture, show a picture while saying what they know. It allows re-dos, emojis, and selfies!! Teachers can control the time....so you get a quick, formative or summative assessment of what they know. I have used it in so many ways....students record their learning, show a video of what they made (example: show rollercoasters they made to demonstrate potential and kinetic energy). I have also used it with my PLN on Twitter with fellow educators and getting to know each other. Lastly, I have been recording myself before each quiz and I give a 3 Minute Flip of everything they need to know - so much great feedback on that. Oh.....and AR, we have used that too. FlipGrid is also SUPER responsive on Twitter. Such a great app and company.
Flipping out for Flipgrid!
Flipgrid is a fantastic tool for giving every student a voice. Whether it is checking for understanding, discussing a topic, or any other number of instructional strategies, it is always challenging to hear from every student. Flipgrid captures each student’s understanding, reasoning, comment, etc. and creates a forum for further dialog. Along the way, it provides an opportunity to build digital citizenship skills. Yes, I left out that it all happens by recording videos and that’s on purpose. It’s not about the videos, yes that’s the medium, but it’s really about capturing the learning of every student. To top it off, it’s easy for teachers and there are tons of resources and guides. Making this happen with any other tool or platform would fall short and be so much more work. Try Flipgrid, it’s flipping awesome!
Five Stars for FLIPGRID
Are you looking for a technology piece that will truly be a game changer? Look no further, FLipgrid is THAT piece. This easy to use app allows students the opportunity to write, record, and collaborate their views with whomever you, the instructor, allows. This app is truly for all ages! The educator sets how you want their recording shared which covers every privacy concern there is. Only you can see it, just your class, your school, or students around the world! It’s simple accessibility allows all digital learners to be successful. I can’t recommend this app enough. I use this for students to read in and I can keep track of fluency. I can respond to individual students and hold actual conversations. Book reviews are a breeze. Love, love, LOVE this app! Download it! Thank me later!
