How I Use It
This interactive video platform was used during our social studies unit. I took small groups of students in the library to complete their "Flipgrid" video. Students had 90 seconds to present their side of an argument and were required to come prepared with text references. Teachers could bring up the page of completed responses in their rooms for the class to evaluate. One challenge would be the filming itself. Adobe needed to be activated and the camera alignment is sometimes tricky. We had two teachers involved which made the task much easier to accomplish.
We love this tool at our school. We have used it both in the classroom, as a component on digital collaboration projects, and for professional development with adults. This tool might be used in a formative way (interviewing students about background knowledge or what they notice) or in a summative way (to assess understanding of a topic) and students are excited to speak and see themselves on a video.
