Getting started is one of the biggest challenges for educators who want to utilize new technologies. A lack of confidence or understanding often paralyzes the good intentions that we all have. Flipgrid has provided some amazing resources for educators to get started in minutes, rather than days! Here are three resources to get you started:
1. Educator Innovation Station
The Educator Innovation Station is your one-stop shop for learning how to use Flipgrid, how to use Flipgrid with Docs, and learn best practices for using the tool in your classroom. The Innovation Station is a great place for you to connect with other like-minded educators, who want to use this tool to the best of their ability. You can also find out how to become Flipgrid Certified and how to connect with Flipgrid on social media!
2. Disco Library
The Disco Library is an excellent place to see examples of Flipgrid in action. Search for topics by grade level, subject area, and topic goals. Do you like one of the topics? You can make a copy and customize it to your needs! This is a great time saver and support for educators, who might not feel comfortable developing a topic.
#GridPals is a great way to connect with other educators who use Flipgrid in your geographic location. This is a great way to connect with teachers who teach similar grades and subject areas!
We are not meant to do life - nor teach - alone, because there is power in numbers. It helps us grow, challenges our skillset, and provides us with another layer of accountability. Flipgrid provides an excellent model for helping educators connect and grow through this amazing tool!
