Flipgrid Basics 💻📱🖥
Are you new to Flipgrid? First, Get Started here.
Here are the basics: When you set up your account, you’ll first create a Topic for your learning community. Topics are discussion prompts that your students respond to with short videos. Students then Record a Response and post their video or view and Add a Comment to one another’s Responses.
Groups are a great way for educators to organize multiple Topics and share them with a community of learners. Invite your students to respond to an individual Topic or to access your Group of Topics by sharing the Join Code or Link.
Flipgrid in Grades 9-12 Science 👩🔬👨🔬
In high school, students use scientific evidence, models, and graphical representations to justify thinking and propose solutions as they learn Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy and Physiology, and Environmental Science. Flipgrid provides a fun and social way to engage your students on any of your Science lessons! Here are a few ways Flipgrid can ignite engagement and capture students’ learning process:
⭐️ Propose and defend a hypothesis
⭐️ Communicate information that identify errors occurring during DNA replication
⭐️ Record investigations to explain properties that are vital to homeostasis
⭐️ Develop models of atomic nuclei while making predictions, calculating weight, and explaining how protons and neutrons differ in isotopes
⭐️ Conduct and record experiments over time describing changes within systems
⭐️ Develop arguments based on evidence to explain the effects biological and physical changes have on organisms and ecosystems
⭐️ Research various scientists to communicate how their findings challenged thinking
⭐️ Explain the relationship between structures and functions of systems.
⭐️ Apply and explain Newton’s Laws of Motion in authentic situations.
Once you’re ready to create your first discussion Topic, you can dive right in from your Educator Admin or head to the Discovery Library for inspiration. Here is a sampling of high school grades science Topics currently available in the Disco Library, all created by your peers and ready to be used with your learners!
🚀 Discovery Library: Biology
DNA Structure by Marc Rocha: A Topic for students to explain the structure of DNA that can be modified to assess prior knowledge, support learning, or extend learning opportunities.
Classification of Biodiversity by Joel Longoria: A Topic for students to explain the importance of international binomial nomenclature.
Animal Definition, Favorite, and Fact by Mrs. Andress: A Topic to explore and explain the definition and characteristics of an animal.
🚀 Discovery Library: Chemistry
Chemistry Class Reflection by Mrs. Andress: A Topic to reflect on chemistry concepts.
Fliphunt: An Abundance of Elements by Mrs. Andress: A Topic for students to explore elements through a digital scavenger hunt.
Endothermic and Exothermic Reactions by Michael Harvey: A Topic for students to integrate scientific and academic vocabulary to explain various reactions.
🚀 Discovery Library: Physics
Defying Gravity by Donna Schies: A Topic for students to investigate and create a simulation to model how magnetic forces can be used to defy gravity.
Conserving Energy by Jornea Erwin: A Topic that calls students to action using their knowledge about energy to advise school leaders to make informed decisions that will benefit the school.
Renewable Energy Sources by Bennet Kolb: A Topic encouraging students to investigate the current energy sources within their state/community and suggest possible renewable energy sources.
Consider this: ISTE Standards for Students 💡
Computational Thinker 5- Students develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that leverage the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions. 5B: Students collect data or identify relevant data sets, use digital tools to analyze them, and represent data in various ways to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making.
Creative Communicator 6 - Students communicate clearly and express themselves creatively for a variety of purposes using the platforms, tools, styles, formats and digital media appropriate to their goals. 6C: Students communicate complex ideas clearly and effectively by creating or using a variety of digital objects such as visualizations, models or simulations.
