Using Flippity to Engage Students
Publish to the Web
Creating Flashcards with Flippity
The easiest use of Flippity is to create flashcards. They aren't as flashy and gamified as using Quizlet, but if you're wanting to have a digital "stack" of flashcards, I'd recommend Flippity. On the site, you will make a copy of the Sheets template and then type in what you'd like to appear on each side of the card. Then, once you Publish to the Web, your flashcards can be easily shared with all students! I create the flashcards, then after publishing to the Web, create a TinyURL that students can access, and students to review the unit vocabulary throughout.
A Jeopardy Style Review Game
There are, of course, several different Jeopardy options out there from the web to the SMART Board, but Flippity has a really neat one that's an easy set up. Once again, make a copy of the template and then insert your questions into the appropriate point totals, and enjoy a jeopardy review game courtesy of Flippity. Richard Byrne, from Free Tech 4 Teachers, created a really nice Screencast of this option if you'd like to check it out.
Random Name Generator
If you've ever used a Random Name Generator in class previously, you know the students' anticipation of seeing their name highlighted. There is one in the SMART Notebook program, but I also found this one to be quite beneficial as well. When the copy of the Sheet is made, enter your students' names, and then your random name generator is ready to go!
