Now that we are in a remote learning environment, it is imperative to connect with your students via video. Flipgrid offers just that for free. Take an in person assignment and turn it into a recorded video assignment with your students. The settings in Flipgrid allow the teacher to share this amongst class (or even parents) or just have videos be turned in directly to them. There are thousands of possibilities when it comes to Flipgrid.
Model 1: Secondary Socratic Seminar
Middle/High School Social Studies- Debate topics. Whereas we may have debates in person via a socratic seminar. Instead, you can post your discussion questions in Flipgrid and have students record their response. Once they've recorded their responses, their classmates will have the opportunity to respond to them with another recording. All of the videos are organized so it becomes easily navigable. The best part is everyone gets to have their opinion stated, that's not always the case in a timed face to face debate.
