Now that we've had time to reflect on all the amazing things that happened at #ISTE18, we've prepared this run-down blog post for those of us who are trying to relive the excitement, as well as for those who couldn't make it to Chicago. We tried a lot of new things at #ISTE18. We ditched the booth, threw some fantastic parties and got to hear from our teachers and students - which was definitely the highlight for us. If you're part of the #NotAtISTE crew, don't worry. We've got a recap for you, with plenty of videos and photos of the highlights…
ISTE 2018 is right around the corner, and team Flocab is ready to mobilize and bring you some great events, sessions and workshops all about Flocabulary!
We're super excited to introduce you to our newest feature, the Vocab Game! The Vocab Game is an additional way for students to practice a lesson’s vocabulary through multiple contexts. Students can build a beat by successfully identifying images, completing sentences, matching definitions and selecting synonyms for the lesson’s vocabulary words. This feature is also automatically graded, and features Comprehension Analysis, which allows teachers to assess the performance of individual students and the class after assigning the activity.
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Team Flocab wants to thank teachers and educators everywhere for serving students, being devoted to education, encouraging curiosity and inspiring us everyday. This year, we asked our MC Educator community and their students to help us celebrate their teachers, past and present. Check it out here:
Representation matters, whether it’s in a big Hollywood blockbuster or a classroom. Flocabulary's videos are shown to students around the world of different ages, ethnicities, abilities and genders. It is important to us here at Flocab HQ to support every student’s identity by creating content with diverse characters, so that students can see themselves in our lessons. We love when educators share their students' excitement with how we portray diversity and inclusion in our lessons. Check out this story that MC Educator Andrea Runnels posted in our Facebook Group:
