Dear Parent or Guardian:
In our summer program Nature Journaling with The REACH we’ll be working with an exciting new tool to increase student engagement in our class. Flipgrid is the leading video discussion platform used by tens of millions of PreK to PhD educators, students, and families in more than 180 countries. Flipgrid allows us to spark a classroom discussion by providing a platform for your child to share short video responses based on questions posed by me, the teacher. This will help create an inclusive dialogue and engage with them in a fun and meaningful way. I think Flipgrid will be a wonderful addition to our class, so I am asking for your permission for your child to use Flipgrid.
Please read these policies carefully, let me know if you have any questions, and then sign below to indicate you’ve read this and allow your child to participate. If you don’t agree to provide consent for your child to participate, please do not allow your child to use the Flipgrid code distributed in class. Students who cannot use Flipgrid will still have access to the educational content in the emailed packet, but in a less interactive format.
Pauline Schafer, Education Manager at The REACH Museum
