Genially and Flipgrid: Interactive activities for students p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Helvetica Neue'} Flipgrid’s Discovery Library is a virtual space where teachers can find ready-made activities which they can assign to students. Students can then respond to prompts offered within each activity, sending their video responses directly to their teacher. Genially is participating (of course) with its own space within the Discovery Library, filled with activities for a range of subjects and ages. New activities are being added all the time, so keep tabs on the page for new teaching aids and activities!

Benefits of Interactive Learning p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Helvetica Neue'} Teachers work to present new information to students and give those students multiple opportunities to engage with that information, using critical thinking, cooperation, SEL and other skills in the process. These opportunities to engage are enhanced and expanded by the use of inherently interactive learning materials. The more times a student works with a given set of concepts, the more likely they are to assimilate them into their knowledge base.

What is interactive learning? p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Helvetica Neue'} Simply put, interactive learning is learning that requires student participation. This participation can come through class and small group discussions as well as through exploration of the interactive learning materials they’re given in a digital classroom.
