Why Flipgrid and Padlet? 
We need blended learning classroom tools that:
are engaging
 hold students accountable for their thinking
promote collaboration between students
support student creation of material
 
 
Download the Seesaw app on your phone (iOS and Android).
Use the codes in the room to join the class. or go to https://web.seesaw.me/
Seesaw is an online digital portfolio.  Students can record their learning, keep work organized in one place, and communicate with you. This can be an essential tool for your 2:1 classroom!

Flipgrid allows students to upload video feedback.  Create a "grid" for your classes.  Inside each "grid" you can post multiple topics.  Inside each topic, students can add their videos.  Post a topic online for students to see each other's responses.  Any short, formative response that you ask students to do can be turned into a Flipgrid.  
 
 
 
 
Flipgrid Ideas: 
Exit Ticket
Video Reflection
Response to a reading
Explain a concept (students can decide who explained it best)
Classroom Introductions 
 
Student self analysis: 
Have students use paperrater to address an essay draft.  Students can respond in flipgrid what they learned about their own writing, and state a goal they have for the draft based on what they learned.  
  
 
 
 
 
Padlet allows you to create a blank "wall" on which anyone with the link can add text, pictures, links, or video.  This gives your classroom a blank space for collaboration, class discussion, posting assignment material, etc.
