Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics are all quite different, but share a common thread: They all infuse inquiry, problem solving, and making real-world connections in learning!
Here are a few ways to ignite engagement and capture the learning process by adding Flipgrid to your STEAM instruction!
👨👨👧👧 Collaboration: Working with peers is an essential part of STEAM. Flipgrid provides a space for students to collaborate with one another while working through problems, sharing discoveries, and reflecting on learning processes.
😁 Feedback: A crucial part of inquiry is making corrections to learning. Use Flipgrid’s Reply feature to allow students to provide feedback to their peers as they work through an engineering loop of creating and retesting based on results.
🤔 Design Thinking: The design processes includes planning, prototyping, testing, and reevaluating problems to find innovative solutions. Empathy and experimentation are critical parts of the design process. Flipgrid is a perfect space to reflect on each of these steps along the way.
🥽 Investigation: Let students dig into new concepts and skills, explore phenomenon, and reflect on learning and understanding by sharing on Flipgrid.
📣 Showcasing Learning: Students can use Flipgrid to share prior knowledge and then report on their findings after investigations and projects. Share and showcase all the incredible moments happening throughout these learning experiences!
