This is so fun! I've hidden little @Flipgrid QR codes for students to respond to throughout the book. I saw this idea on Twitter and thought it would be such a cool idea for book clubs. #fliphunt @scott_elem @SpearsElem Anybody want to work on one together? pic.twitter.com/ubwvOSWLPX— Courtney Harrison (@harrison579) September 19, 2019
Using @Flipgrid to create “Live Word Walls”. My grids are set up by topic. When students are struggling with a topic, they are able to watch a classmate explain it to them at any time! @CGarza0930 @mrstalktechie @FelyTeachnology @AnaMPerez1 @OmarLopez0207 #LJTECHi3 pic.twitter.com/BZ2jX1XyIB— ℂ𝕠𝕟𝕟𝕚𝕖 𝕄𝕒𝕣𝕥𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕫 😎 (@ConnietMtz) September 23, 2019
My son is a reluctant writer. But, he came home yesterday so excited! His teacher at Hillwood Middle inspired him by allowing him to read his final draft aloud on @Flipgrid. He even created a blooper reel. He wants to use @Flipgrid every day!! Thank you Ms. Meno! @KellerISD— Andrea Gray (@mathladygray) September 20, 2019
