Discussion & Response Tools

'Discussion & Response' tools refer to platforms your students can use to have conversations online. These can be recorded responses to prompts that can't happen in real time, or interactions on an online discussion board.
 Tools included in this section:
  • Flipgrid: A tool that allows students to record video responses. The videos are usually reflections, or responses to a specific topic/prompt asked by the teacher.


  • Padlet: A tool that allows students to respond to a prompt, or add content to a virtual discussion board. Responses can come in the form of writing, images, recordings, links, or other media.
