I introduced Flipgrid at today's Tech Tuesday session. Although I am just starting to experiment with Flipgrid I can really see its potential. I don't usually showcase sites that require a subscription; free is usually my number one criteria, but I really like what I'm seeing. I haven't tried it with students yet, but I'm on the 21 day free trial and I'm hoping to use it this week. I love the idea of students being able to record video responses. I would have liked to have used it for my I Forest of Reading books and perhaps even the end of my Blind Book Date participants. It would be great to have students use as an oral exit ticket or as a reflection piece. I love that it can embed into our school sites so easily. I do encourage you to check it out for yourself. Very promising. Let me know if you try it.
So I wanted to create some fun in the library for Valentine's Day and I remembered a tweet by someone (apologies if that person is YOU) which talked about going on a book date.
