  1. Use a search engine to search for photos or videos related to a lesson, instead of an encyclopedia or textbook.
  2. Use Google Drive, OneDrive, or DropBox to store and sort collections of photos and videos
  3. Use Google Slides, PowerPoint, or Animoto to create a photo slideshow.


  1. Students can collaborate on a shared video project in WeVideo, where the teacher can provide feedback in real time.
  2. Create a Flipgrid topic where students can discuss a prompt virtually or create a screencast showing their work.  Allow students to reply to each other and teachers should leave students video feedback.
  3. Use Giphy or another .gif creator to create custom gifs for you to use on virtual student work instead of stickers.


  1. Create a video “virtual field trip” in the video editor of your choice, using green screen technology.
  2. Partner with another classroom, outside of your school on a Flipgrid topic.  Encourage students to leave reply videos.
  3. Coach students in creating example/demo videos for complex topics.  House these videos in one central location, such as a YouTube channel for access by other students.


  1. Create a FlipGrid lesson and share it to the community DiscoLibrary.
  2. Create a WeVideo template for others in your school/district community to use.
  3. In partnership with your school/district’s communications director, create a student-led video highlighting a project or initiative your students are proud of.  Share this video on social media.
