It’s launched! 🚀 Here at Flocab HQ, we’ve been hard at work all summer to bring you new features for back to school. This year, we’re going back to our roots and bringing you a powerful new feature to support and increase vocabulary acquisition: assignable vocab cards.
For many educators, ISTE is the biggest conference of the year. The same goes for Flocabulary! We just returned from 3 incredible, exhausting-yet-invigorating days on the expo hall floor in San Antonio. Didn't catch us in the convention center? Maybe you're part of the #NotAtISTE crew? We've got a recap for you, with plenty of videos and photos to check out. Let's go! ISTE Student Standards Rap Live Performances Second Annual Academic Rap Battle Flocabulary MC Educator Sessions
For so many years, I have dreamed about attending ISTE. When I found out that I would be able to attend this year, I was speechless (THANK YOU to my wonderful school district, MISD!). Now that we are about a week away, I am still so excited, but now the nerves have set in! This “ISTE Newbie” needed some guidance and help! What does an educator do when they are looking for guidance and help? They reach out to their PLN! And boy, did my PLN show up for me!
Earlier this spring, we asked members of the Flocabulary community to share stories of how their class loves to learn with Flocabulary by posting photos or videos on social media tagged #HowWeFlocab.

Learning together is always better. From sketchnotes to rap battles, and test prep to poetry, we found teachers using Flocabulary in out-of-the-box ways to bring joy into the classroom and make learning engaging and fun. Ready to get inspired? Snag these teachers’ tactics…
Earlier this week, we published a sneak peek of how one Texas school shared their Flocabulary story with the team at CBS This Morning. Today, Melody, Wendy, and their amazing students at Carver Elementary in Garland made their national TV debut!
