Flip Video

I might believe in Santa Claus, but I already have a list written. It only has one item on it – a Flip Video.

David Pogue highlights the basic functions of the flip video. However, the possibilities are endless.

Larry Ferlazzo had a blog post in June with the ultimate teacher how-to guides and links to other resources for using a flip video. It is very applicable for my classroom since he teaches ESL, which is teaching a language.

The Buddy Project is another site with ideas and resources for teachers.

I am even more impressed by the charitable view of Flip Video. They encourage charitable organizations to apply to get discounted Flips. Images can be powerful. Images with audio can change lives. They say over 1,200 groups have benefited. I read the fine print … schools can apply. Maybe I do not have to wait for Santa this year.

Ideas for using Flip Video in my classroom:

  • Film projects
  • Film TPR vocab practice
  • Film speaking exercises
  • Film novela scenes
  • Supplement podcasts with video
  • 8th graders film mini lessons for 6th graders
  • 6th graders film at the beginning of the year and show improvement for the end of the year
