I really loved the idea of posting the picture and using hot-spots to enlighten the teacher of those in the picture, the setting that the teacher took place etc. And I have never heard of flipgrid, but I really look forward to using it and learning more about it. Very informative video, thank you
Good essay. I think I was aware of about 50% of the apps discussed. I liked the detail she included in each app.
Several great apps to use
I enjoyed the "human/technical difficulty " moment in the beginning😂. The content was so helpful. Thank you!
