https://info.flipgrid.com/   Flipgrid is a website and app that allows teachers to create “grids” to facilitate video discussions. Each grid is like a message board where teachers can pose questions, called “topics”, and students can post video responses. Students can learn to articulate ideas with well-planned responses and consider alternate viewpoints as they listen to their peers’ responses. https://info.flipgrid.com/

https://padlet.com/

Padlet is a website and app that allows students to collaborate with each other by curating information onto virtual bulletin boards using simple drag-and-drop systems in real time. Students and teachers can start with a template or a blank page and add videos, text, links, documents, and images to the wall and organize it, like a page full of Post-it notes. Students can also upload documents they’ve created, such as class notes or completed assignments. More than one person can contribute to a Padlet wall, which allows for collaboration and group projects.
