This week we read the article The Cycle of Socialization by Bobbie Harro. We then created a Flipgrid response with one word, one phrase, and one sentence that stuck out to us. We watched a few and then added to our community Flipgrid.
I have used Flipgrid before and love how much it gets students talking. Sometimes it takes a few times for students to become comfortable, but once they are, it is great to see personalities come alive. Obviously also very useful if students are learning from home.
This experience was different in how I personally have responded to Flipgrids in the past. Usually when I am responding it has been for exhibition feedback or something collaborative around the world. However, I find it was a little similar to how I have set it up for students before. Even when we are teaching at school, we use Flipgrid for our book clubs. This helps students connect with others who are reading the same book as them, and listen to different perspectives. Theoretically, Flipgrid allows more thinking time for students, and possibly allows for shy voices to be heard more.
I found the protocol interesting, and as I said in one of my videos, I am curious about how it might work with fiction texts. When focusing on comprehension skills, I feel like this may be a useful tool. It could, in a way, help to summarize and find main ideas on a page or in a chapter.
