Flipgrid is an alternative to text-based discussions, it gives students a different way to hone their communication skills and help them find their “voice” on a topic. It creates a space for students to communicate verbally what they have learned… something that’s more difficult to do in a fully-online classroom.
Flipgrid just announced one free grid for educators! Get more info here.
Flipgrid can easily be a companion to either an online or blended class.
Questions? – contact Brad Hinson or enlist the help of a techTA.
