This year, I will be “breaking the ice” in my high school classes using Flipgrid. I have Flipgrid Fever!
It is almost time to put on the work shoes and go back to teaching school. I don’t want to greet my class with forty-five dull minutes of explaining the course, the rules or the homework policy. My objective for the first day is for students to feel comfortable in the classroom and learn a little about the people they share it with. The plan is to have each student make a short video introducing themselves and answering some serious and some silly “get to know you” questions. Flipgrid is perfect for this activity. I have had great experiences with student video assignments. See The Power of Student Voices!
