If you missed our inaugural #FlocabChat last month, fret not—our next chat is only a week away. We were amazed at the turnout of our first chat, with 48 participants and over 500 tweets sent. It was a whirlwind (and an awesome one at that)!
You already know that Flocabulary has an innovative and talented creative team, with an average of four new Flocab videos produced every week. Creativity at Flocabulary runs deep, and spreads widely across all functions, including our Sales, Customer Success and Engineering teams. We love when students show enthusiasm for the arts and creative fields. However, the time they devote to artistic interests often begins to dwindle as they get older—whether it’s due to day jobs, college or other responsibilities. The idea of being a musician, producer or writer may seem impractical after reaching adulthood.
I recently took a quick poll in my middle school social studies classes. My question pertained to an app I’ve heard about from students. The free app, Musical.ly, is like YouTube for self-created music videos. In my classes, most all hands went up. They were almost all consumers of Musical.ly videos.
Vocabulary has been the bread and butter of Flocabulary since its inception (where'd you think we got our name from?). We are firm believers in and advocates for effective and engaging vocabulary instruction as a springboard to long-term student achievement.
On September 13, we hosted our very first #FlocabChat on Twitter! Shoutout to our inaugural host, Flocab MC & longtime friend, Jon Smith, who led us in our new chat adventure fearlessly and enthusiastically. We were overwhelmed not only by the awesome response, but by the quality of ideas that were exchanged between members of the Flocab community.
