Flipgrid: Build Supportive Teacher-Student Relationships
Now more than ever, we must connect with our students to build relationships, and previously we always did this in our classrooms, face-to-face. Flipgrid is a perfect platform for connecting in a remote setting. With Flipgrid, connection and relationships can still be built, as students learn about each other and their teacher with fun and engaging prompts and SEL-based activities designed to reduce stress. Check out Flipgrid’s Discovery Library for so many helpful “Getting to Know You” activities.
Tip: Research has shown that seeing others’ faces facilitates the relationship-building process, so make sure that you and the students are visible on screen. If students do not wish to show their home learning environments, Flipgrid updates enable them to blur their backgrounds.
