I came across Flipgrid yesterday which is a video discussion platform that describes itself as ‘Where social learning happens’ (Flipgrid HomePage https://info.flipgrid.com/)

Basically you create a grid and a topic and then people can share short video responses and comment on each others video. You can have moderated comments and change the length of clips.

I think this could have lots of potential so I’ve been having a play around with it… if you have used Flipgrid for learning and teaching please let me know as I am convinced it would be useful for all sorts of things …. I was thinking staff development and community building, events, all sorts of things…


There is a helpful link on the site to many ( or as we say in Wales ‘tumps of’) ways that it could be used

So anyway here is one I prepared earlier ….I tried to embed it below but it wouldnt let me so here is the link and a screen shot …

#BYOD4L Day 5 Creativity and Celebrating Reflections

BYOD4l Image

Well, this is the second time I have written this blog post as for some reason WordPress decided it didn’t want to save my ramblings as ususal … anyhow.. I’ve managed to rescue some of it and have added some more rambles …

I just wanted to say (again ) that although  #BYOD4L is over for another year, the community itself however is still very much alive and kicking !

Friday proved to be yet another fab exchange of ideas in our tweetchat.

I must admit though that I found it quite challenging at times trying to facilitate between posting the Questions and juggling the Tasks. I had to resort quite a few times to asking Alex and the rest of the lovely #BYOD4L team which one we were supposed to be on !

The wonderful community that is #BYOD4l embraced the whole thing as usual and contributed and shared so many ideas , images and resources in such a creative way … Check these fab ones out from the lovely Suzanne, Neil and Kerry 🙂

Scott did us a couple of his fab visualisations too of the various exchanges showing the range of our community .. if you want to see more of Scotts clever stuff like this check out his blog

There were so many things that I was inspired by that are simply too many to mention but a key ‘moment’ if you pardon the pun was when my lovely colleague Chris Jobling gave an impromptu ‘how to’ session on how to use Twitter Moments … and in true fashion modelling what he talks about he has made a moment … I’ve embedded it here as its brill 🙂 I will be experimenting with moments very soon ! In the meantime … enjoy this one Chris prepared earlier …

There is also a storify of the tweet chat available ( although of course this wont be available for ever…)
