Dr. Jodi Zeis and the Teaching Fellows at Francis Marion have been hard at work with some great new ideas for building community and connecting to parents and students. Dr. Zeis writes, "In a March (online) meeting with the Teaching Fellows, we all felt as though there was still much outreach to be done with the community...After some brainstorming, we decided to create short (10 minute or less) learning ideas, read alouds, crafts, etc. for families to learn with. Using Flip Grid, we started a Flip page where visitors can go and try each activity." Dr. Zeis is excited to share the first eight videos at the following link: https://flipgrid.com/0d7053e7.
Dr. Zeis noted that they are also able to track how many hours of interaction have occurred and that FMU Fellows hope to keep growing the page and "improving our approach to quick learning ideas."
