Hey everyone! Happy almost winter break ❄️

What digital platforms have you been using to engage with students? Especially if it's collaborative or fosters more classroom community.

I like flip grid to get responses. It is especially good with younger students who cannot type out longer statements easily.

I'll have to try it out! I'm working with highschool students but have a ton of english language learners who might benefit.

I enjoy Padlet for High school (subscription required) it has different formats for text, image conversations and it can be live or asynchronous

Yes I loved padlet! I was using it to ask essential questions in the beginning of the week and prime students for discussion. I'll have to see if my site will reimburse the subscription cost.

What I've been wanting to try though is this. I know you can only have three pages on the free plan, but what if I just erase everything from the page and then just reuse it? Hmmm 🤔🤫
