#WednesdayWisdom about Flipgrid from Brian Romero Smith:
Uses
Flipgrid provides a use for all school needs.  Including school & student intros, PD feedback/surveys after sessions, teacher appreciation opportunities and positive culture building, to making inferences and prediction activities for ELA… Wait, there’s more, inter and intra classroom collaboration, vocal music competition practice and World Language fluency practice...Finally, Flipgrid is even used for video voice mail for my campus offices. 

Impact
Throughout the District, communication has a new meaning for the adults, however Ss, because of the intuitive nature of Flipgrid, see its use as a “Finally”! The teachers have something that truly meets students where they are, by first implementing video that’s familiar, but also encourages their hodgepodge approach to using creative tools that can be uploaded as a final product. This empowers students with choice and voice to change their learning game for both the student and the teacher!

Advice
Pretend you are in the mirror practicing, but this time you get to review what you did, smile, laugh or maybe cringe, but you can redo as much as you like until it’s just what you want! Most important, bring the fun back to learning!
