I originally learned about Flocabulary when I attended ISTE last summer in Chicago and went to the Flocabulary concert. Both the energy and message were so inspiring to me. I came back to school in the fall knowing I HAD to get more teachers involved in using this amazing and engaging tool. A great way to do this was by creating a Lyric Lab option for our 10th graders’ yearly personal project.

Black History Month is an important time for teachers to highlight both the struggles and the vast achievements of Black figures in history. Teachers may look to our handy compilation of Flocabulary’s Black History Month content for inspiration, however, with so much material and history, it can be difficult to know where to begin. To break down our content further, we asked teachers for ideas and tips on using Flocab during Black History Month. Starting broadly and working into more specific applications, these are some best practices for using Flocabulary to teach Black History.
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…
For February’s #FlocabChat, we talked about hip-hop’s ability to transform classrooms and enhance lesson plans. While we covered a lot in our discussion, we wanted to break it down even further, as the benefits of using hip-hop within education are endless. A quick shout out to MC Educator Joquetta Johnson, our fearless discussion leader and hip-hop ed advocate! Her questions were thought-provoking and prompted a great conversation. If you missed the chat, we’ve compiled all of it here.
