Meet the 2016 Flipgrid Heroes

Thank you to all who applied for our 2016 Flipgrid Heroes Fellowship, and to everyone who continues to serve as an advocate for student voice. The work you do is incredibly important, and we are fortunate to be part of such a passionate and innovative community. 

In support of their efforts to champion student voice, Flipgrid Heroes will receive a $500 fellowship, a one-year Flipgrid license/extension, a Flipgrid Heroes hooded sweatshirt, and a Flipgrid pack of fun goods. 

Congratulations to the 2016 Flipgrid Heroes!

Stanford Teaching Commons Offers Thought-Provoking Question Guide

At the core of Flipgrid is the question. One of the best ways to facilitate enriched discussion is posing a great question.

If you're looking for ways to stimulate your students, check out this great guide from the Stanford Teaching Commons. Along with offering ideas on how to ensure you're asking effective questions, the guide offers suggestions on what kind of questions you should avoid.

With Flipgrid, you need not worry about the section on Managing Group Dynamics: on Flipgrid, every student has an equal voice!
