Using Flipgrid to promote student voice in Reading and Writing Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

In this workshop I will explain how I use the app and website Flipgrid (flipgrid.com) to promote student voice in Reading and Writing Workshop. With Flipgrid, students can make video responses to teacher questions about the books they are reading. The responses are then collected on a webpage that can be embedded into a class or school blog. In this workshop I will:

  • show example Q and A grids from my Grade 4 Tokyo International School class and other classes

  • give step-by-step instructions on how to set up, maintain and embed grids

  • demonstrate how Flipgrid can support specific Reading and Writing Workshop lessons

By the end of the workshop, teachers will be able to make their own question and answer  Flipgrids, understand how this app can promote student voice and see the possibilities of how this activity can support reading and writing in the primary and middle school classroom.

The headsets we use in Tokyo Int School are similar to this: http://amzn.to/2rbUugF [Whichever you choose, make sure to look for 4-pin as these should work with all iOS and Android devices]
