Back in the day (as in the 80s and 90s), when we wanted to do something special for our BFFs, we spent hours copying our favorite jams onto one tape to create the perfect listening experience. “Mixtapes” were the perfect space to share whatever we wanted with whomever we wanted!
Fast-forward to 2018. Educators are helping students share their ideas, wonderings, projects, questions - their MAGIC - in new and creative ways every day. So we’re kicking it old school to help you amplify and share #StudentVoice like never before!
Introducing MixTapes, the raddest way to share mic drop moments with the ones that matter.
You can create a MixTape for anything:
💯 Student Portfolios
🎓 Semester Highlights
⭐️ Project Showcase
🗓 School Yearbooks
📚 Read Alouds
👩👩👧👦 Family Night Memories
👩🎤 Talent Show Remixes
🎤 Student TED Talks
You pick what goes on your MixTape (any Response from any of your Topics in any of your Grids!) and you set the order you want the Responses to play. Your MixTapes are view-only and can be shared anywhere. Additionally, your community can Follow your MixTapes to receive updates when new videos are added.
Ready to get rocking? Just tap the MixTapes button in your Educator Admin! For step-by-step instructions and getting started ideas, check out this MixTapes #GridTip from the Flipgrid Educator Innovation trio Jornea, Jess, and Ann!
