Flipping Out Over Flipgrid

My students need headphones with microphones to use Chromebooks more effectively!

My Students

My firsties are curious, intelligent, and spunky, however, most of my students do not have computers or WiFi in their own homes. We are implementing a 1:1 classroom with Chromebooks, and they are excited! We use Flipgrid to record their explanations of what they just learned to understand and retain the lessons taught better. As they explain their thoughts, they are building confidence and gaining greater speaking skills at a very young age. We believe in the Power of Yet as we continue to grow and bloom in 1st grade!

My Project

My students struggle with just the basic skills and concepts. A little over half are reading below their grade level which holds them back and makes them feel defeated, and when we move to math lessons, they continue to disengage due to the difficulty of the concepts. Enter Flipgrid! Explaining what they have learned on Flipgrid reinforces the lesson and gets them excited to open for more. Watching their eyes light up while they are describing what they now know is delightful. However, it’s difficult to record and hear with all the noise of 21 first graders. These headphones plus noise reducing microphones will definitely improve their learning and build their confidence.
