How I Use It
I used Flipgrid as an activity for students to share their opinion on various topics in Health. The video allowed students to create a answer to a question without writing. This was good mode for some of my ELL students that do not have a strong command of the English language to voice their opinion instead of producing a written response.
My Take
My overall opinion of Flipgrid as a teaching tool is that it is necessary for the new generation of students. Students are able to share their opinion by creating a video response to a topic. Flipgrid is useful in a classroom of struggling readers and writers. I believe that the students that are shy and do not want to participate in class discussions now have a mode to become part of the lesson using Flipgrid.
