The web tool sites I picked to create an account with were Screencastify and Flipgrid. I don't have any apple software so I immediately had to ex out a few of them. I've heard of both of them before so they grabbed my interest. I really liked being able to see yourself and present various things on your screen at the same time with Screencastify and in our 1st 702 class session using Flipgrid the wheels started turning on how I could apply it in my classroom. For my instructional video I used Voicethread because the tutorial presented it in a way that seemed very simplistic and I felt very straight forward.
My main concern is all the wonderful tools I have been introduced to and learned about being great resources to expand my teaching I will not be able to access on the district iPads given to my classroom for use every year. I won't even know exactly what I will and will not be able to download and be able to show them and explore with until about the 2nd month of school.
All three of the articles were a great read. Prior to I had never heard of flipped classroom and I am now a super fan of the idea. The "In Class Flip" that Caitlin Tucker discussed and the video Jennifer Gonzales made to explain in-depth how and what a rotation could look like is something I would like to implement. My students already are very familiar with rotation stations and I'm used to that teaching strategy so adding that component would not take a lot of extra work. I could see how this idea could be used with math rotations and it syncing in with Bridges, our adopted curriculum.
