Technology: In this session, I will share my experiences using the video response tool, Flipgrid, in both online and blended teaching and learning contexts across graduate and undergraduate courses. The focus of my presentation will be on how to enhance student engagement and active learning through the use of this innovative video tool. Specifically, I will extend theories in social-constructivism as the guiding philosophy of my use of this technology. As part of my presentation, I hope to inspire brainstorming of other ways the tool can be used to create engagement across content, students, and in the world.
Evidence: I have been using Flipgrid in my classes since January 2017. Sharing my grids with colleagues in the College of Education ignited interest in exploring this tool. To support emerging curiosity, our department purchased the 10-licensue package. Since this point, Tom Van Gilder and others in Learning Technology Services in the Center for Academic Excellence have expressed an interest in supporting a larger campus initiative. Further, in my classes, students have commented on how the tool helps them build community and share ideas. While largely anecdotal at this point, this evidence illustrates the impact of this tool on learning communities.
Broader Impacts: It is my hope that my session will inspire discussion of the broader impacts of how Flipgrid can be used to facilitate students’ engagement and learning in authentic ways. Specifically, I hope to develop a list of considerations that may be used to promote active learning and higher order thinking, rather than lower-order memory and recall types of engagement. In this way, my presentation will focus on thinking through pedagogy and implications for learning experiences as vital prerequisites for using Flipgrid.
