An Often Overlooked Flipgrid Option for Starting Conversations

In this week's Practical Ed Tech Newsletter I shared some tools and ideas to use to try to make sure that students actually watch the instructional videos that you create for them. One of my suggestions was to try an option in Flipgrid that is hiding in plain sight. 

When you post a new topic in Flipgrid you can record a video for your students to respond to. But you can also upload a video that you've recorded outside of Flipgrid and have your students respond to it. When using that option I'd include some questions throughout the video that students have to address when they record their responses in Flipgrid. 

Watch this short video to learn how to upload videos to start conversations in Flipgrid.
