This #Fliphunt movement has absolutely been an evolution of ideas. It started with:
EdTech? On a Field Trip?… which led to …
I Had a Flipiphany!… which led to….
So what’s a #Fliphunt? It’s a video-based scavenger hunt that is completely organized and run in the AMAZING Flipgrid environment. Since the entire UNIVERSE is using Flipgrid now…or should be…this is a wonderfully fun way to get students up and moving while exploring new learning or documenting understanding using the most beloved edtech site for amplifying student voice and student engagement in ways never known before!
Would a #Fliphunt motivate even the most reluctant learners? Is video a powerful way to capture student learning? Can a scavenger hunt be a formative assessment? Can it be differentiated? Do kids like stuff like this? Uhhhh….yeeessssss! Just take a look at this simple example of one Geometry #Fliphunt:
Here’s another one I created to assess students’ knowledge of the skeletal system:
Here’s a super simple visual of how it’s done…
Are you starting to get ideas about how you can adapt this to your own curricular content? These can literally be created and used for every subject and for every age! I have created this infographic of planning considerations to help you think through a few things as you begin to craft your own #Fliphunt:
Here’s some extra-great news for those of you who are eager to jump in and get started. Next week, at the #FlipgridLive event, Priscilla Heredia and I will be formally introducing and running THE FIRST grand-scale, crazy, off-the-charts, not-actually-educational #Fliphunt for folks who are there at Flipgrid HQ in Minneapolis. I have a pretty good feeling that that grid and the not-too-secret password are going to be released via social media…and the WORLD will be able to play along (somewhat)! I also happen to know that that grid is going to have bells & whistles that you REALLY, REALLY want:
- other sample #Fliphunt ideas organized by subject
- a place for you to add your OWN creative awesome #Fliphunts for others
- clever #Fliphunt game adaptation ideas
- …and even more #Fliphunt resources!
My favorite thing about the WHOLE #Fliphunt thing is that once this grid is released…..the content is forevermore totally created & curated by the Fligrid community! YOU ALL will be the contributors, the askers, the solvers, the brainstormers, and the make-it-betterers! 😎
I have one teensy request….share loudly and widely! Please use the hashtag to share cool #Fliphunt success stories and pictures and link the #Fliphunts you create, and most importantly please add the things you create to the new, collaborative grid once it’s released on 8.1.18.
