On the 8th day of Create-mas I share with thee Flippity. I have had a love affair with Flippity for so many year but we have some new items added. They recently added multimedia flashcards. What a great way to chunk up information into bite size pieces. I find that when you have less information on each slide/flashcard it is easier for students and to be honest anyone absorb it.
Like all Flippity items it uses a spreadsheet that you put in your own data/content. Flippity does a wonderful job giving clear and concise directions for the novice and expert spreadsheet user. You make a copy of the spreadsheet then away you go.
Some of my favorite Flippity spreadsheets are:
- Random Name Picker – great for making groups and randomly calling on students
- Leader Board – having a competition? Try out the leaderboard. Note it does not update immediately as that is a refresh rate with Google itself and not the script
- TimeLine – interactive timeline that is easy to add content to (much easier then JS Timeline)
- Quiz Show – jeopardy like game with automatic scoring and ability to copy and paste clues
