I watch football all of the time, coached football for years, and taught both of my boys how to throw a […]

How do you move from “pockets of innovation” to a “culture of innovation”? How do we move from “engagement” to “empowerment”?

In our last post, we dove into a three-step system to get students to do the talking. Getting them to open up and do the majority of talking (and learning) is not as easy as some make it out to be. In fact, for me, it was incredibly difficult. The three-step system scaffolded a way […]

Three different schools, in three different states, in a matter of two weeks. I got the same question. “How can I use Flipgrid in my class?” “Have you tried this with Flipgrid?” “Oooh, this would be perfect with Flipgrid!” It seems that Flipgrid has teachers and school leaders around the country (and world) excited to […]
