As a former Kindergarten teacher, I know that germs are everywhere. The last thing I wanted to do was catch a fever. In my current role, there is a tool that I would love to share, watch spread, and catch on as a full-blown fever! Yes, I have #flipgridfever!
I know this isn't a new tool and I have used it for a little over a year now, but only with administrators and teachers. I want to see this tool in the hands of our students! So I planned an after-school training with teachers to show them how to use the tool and more importantly, how to use it effectively within a lesson. To entice them to join me, I always provide some sort of snack, but I also created Flipgrid recording "studios" based on an idea that I saw on Twitter:
I'm thankful to Flipgrid for sharing customizable, pre-made training materials on their site! The Slides deck from my training session is linked on my Trainings page at www.techykilgore.com/trainings.html. Check it out for a list of ideas on how to implement Flipgrid based on the grade level you teach!
Comment below and tell me how you are using Flipgrid in your classroom. I would love to hear your ideas!
