We know that even though final grades are submitted, learning never stops. The time students and educators spend away from school are filled with such meaningful and authentic learning opportunities! With the power and accessibility of Flipgrid, we can continue to amplify our students' voices, challenge them to share their learning, and keep them connected while away from school during summer break.
Here are some ideas to keep your students engaged this summer!
Summer Book Clubs: When students are sent a summer reading list, simply create a Grid and include a Topic for each book students are asked to read! (Bonus: This could be a great idea for teachers to share what they’re reading with each other as well!)
