In my classroom, students are no longer afraid to speak. Flipgrid has assisted in building a community of thinkers who know it's ok to make mistakes, but also to share those with one another.
Not all of your students are going to be super on board at first - and that is ok. I always give my students an option to write if they are uncomfortable with video. But by the end of the year, most of them want to participate with their peers. Don't force it.
