From all of us at Flocabulary, Happy 2016! We’re pumped for another year of working with awesome educators to inspire students. But whether you’re in a Brooklyn office or the back of an ELA classroom, getting into the swing of things after the holidays can be tricky!
It's Computer Science Education Week! This is an international event with the mission of teaching students about computer science. Every year, people around the globe participate in an Hour of Code where they engage in a variety of coding activities.
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.
We’re nearly halfway through 2019, and Flocab has so much new content to show for it. If you don’t follow us on Pinterest, you probably don’t know about our New Lessons board, where we post our newest lessons. Never fear, this blog post will cover all our new additions since January!
If you know Nearpod, you know why we’re so excited about becoming part of their fam — engagement for days! But in case you’ve never used or even heard of Nearpod, here are some firsthand accounts from Nearpod and Flocab co-users to help you understand why they fit together perfectly. Before you combine two tools, you have to know why they’re valuable individually. Below, we asked what makes Flocabulary and Nearpod so great as standalone classroom tools.
