Create fun, engaging activities for your staff or students with #Fliphunts using Flipgrid.
Have you heard of Flipgrid? The answer to that question is most likely, yes. But have you heard of a #Fliphunt? I was able to participate in my very first #Fliphunt activity while attending the MIE Expert and Showcase School Leadership Summit in Florida in conjunction with FETC.
A #Fliphunt is an engaging lesson format that uses Flipgrid as a platform for a scavenger hunt type activity. Students respond to challenges in various ways on the provided Flipgrid. Talk about ENGAGEMENT!!
I had so much fun participating in my first #Fliphunt that I created a few #Fliphunts of my own to use in my presentation at TCEA the very next week. 👇
Presenting #Fliphunts at TCEA was a huge success, so I knew this was something I had to share with my teachers right away. I started by creating a fun activity for our CTI (Campus Technology Integrator) meeting so that they could go back and share the Flipgrid #Fliphunt love with their campuses. I’d say they became big fans right away!!
I know that your teachers will love #Fliphunts as much as I do. Read Kathi Kersznowski’s blog to learn more about how she coined the term “#Fliphunt” and how she has been sharing the #Fliphunt love everywhere. And be sure to subscribe and follow her on social media. She’s amazing! She has also created a Flipgrid filled with so many great ideas on how you can implement a #Fliphunt in your class.
