If you have a tween in your household you probably know or have heard of Fortnite. Well Tom Spall has taken that concept and made it into a platform for student choice! Can you say GENIUS! " Students not only need, but they also want the ability to have both a voice and the freedom of choice when it comes to creating and presenting their content." Check out the Student Digital Menu and read more of his inspiring words from Brenham ISD!
After using Flipgrid for over a year now, I finally finished the required steps needed to get my Flipgrid Certified badge while at the TCEA conference. I am so excited and LOVE Flipgrid! It is one of the best and easiest student response tools online today. Safe for any age group, you have the ability to set preferences of privacy for a controlled environment response. You simply create a Grid for your 'classroom' and then add Topics to have students or others respond to it by video. It gives people of all ages a safe environment to provide them a voice about their learning. To learn more about Flipgrid or how to get started, see this Educator Guide from Karly and Sean.
I work with teachers and students as a Digital Media Specialist for the Pearland ISD Curriculum Department. My goal is to share innovative and useful information for other educators, as well as catalog my personal finds along the way!
