I recently discovered FlipGrid and I am truly excited about sharing this (currently) free, interactive discussion platform at the high school school and about using it with my grad classes, perhaps in a way similar to the way I currently use Voicethread.
Please share your best “elevator speech” addressing why school libraries are important to children. You have 90 seconds and you may include links.
After allowing webcam activation, students are asked to select a filter option and snap a thumbnail photo.
They are taken to the “Record” screen where they have up to 90 seconds to record and re-record their video response until they are satisfied with their videos.
After the recording, students enter their names and email addresses and their video is posted or send to the teacher for moderation.
Responses may be shared, embedded and liked using social media buttons below each video.
Videos may be sorted randomly or sorted by name, date, likes or views.
