Our next #FlocabChat is coming right up! Join us Tuesday, November 15 at 8 PM ET, when we’ll gather the community to talk about student voice.
At Flocab, we love the opportunity to hang with teachers. Our inspiration levels are at an all time high when we connect innovative educators out there who share their suggestions, stories and passions. That’s one of the reasons we’re stoked to take off to Denver this weekend to kick it with edtech savvy educators from around the world at #ISTE2016!
Will you be at ISTE too? Don’t miss the Flocab crew at booth 920—we’ve got some awesome things planned. Check out our ISTE 2016 highlights below, and don’t forget to follow along on Twitter!
Sessions and PD
Our staff will lead sessions regularly throughout the conference:
- “Flocab 411” will give visitors a crash course on all things Flocabulary, plus a glimpse at our newest features.
- Our “Tap into WRAP” sessions will teach educators the secret to the Flocab rap formula, so they can work with students in the classroom to create their own educational rhymes!
We’ll also host a number of feature sessions led by Flocab MC Educators—check out the schedule below:
Each week, we task students with thinking outside the box for the chance at Flocabulary fame through The Week in Rap and The Week in Rap Junior Shout-Out Contests! Ms. Megan Shipley’s 7th Grade Social Studies students at Margaret Mead Junior High School in Elk Grove Village, IL stole the show by creating materials to recruit new astronauts. Meanwhile, Ms. Laura Maier’s 5th graders at The Valley School in Seattle, WA stood out by creating new national holidays. Read on to learn about their outstanding entries!
We gave our home page a makeover, making it easier than ever to get to the Flocab videos and activities you want to see! Here’s a recap of the new improvements you’ll find the next time you log in to Flocabulary…
Every week, we ask The Week in Rap Junior fans a question through our Shout-Out Contest, and recognize the school that responds with creativity, imagination, and educational relevance, too. Students in Kristen Strother’s class at North Lewis Elementary School in New Iberia, LA did some delightful storytelling about their very own circus to win the latest Shout-Out. Delve in to discover their masterful use of descriptive language.
