How does your school engage the parents and families in your community? If you’re Spring Lake Park school district in Minnesota, you use Flipgrid!
Spring Lake Park created a grid for their district and a topic for each school. Within those topics, they had every teacher, admin, and staff member post an intro video which they then shared with their community. It required only a few minutes for each teacher to post and it allowed the community as a whole to see their passion for educating students.
This year we're challenging you to take part in the #FlipgridBack2School challenge. Here's what you'll need to do.
1. Get your administration on board with the project. Show them the SLP grid!
2. Create a grid for your district and post a topic for each school. Or, create a grid for your school and post a topic for each department or grade level!
3. Ask each teacher to post a video introduction. Feature your principal’s video as an introduction to the school! (If you are a Flipgrid Classroom user, turn on Replies and let your students' families and the community say 'hello').
4. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org once every educator has recorded to let us know!
Once you create a grid for your school and get every teacher to post, we’ll hook you up with a free one-year Flipgrid Classroom subscription ($65 value). Already have Flipgrid Classroom? We’ll extend your subscription a year.
