I am a pre-service teacher majoring in Biology Secondary Education at Wartburg College in Waverly, IA. In one of my recent field experience classrooms, my cooperating teacher used a resource called FlipGrid as part of her online labs. This resource allows the teacher to post a video demonstration of the lab. If the lab is something that students can safely and easily do at home, they are asked to create their own demo video and send it back to the teacher on FlipGrid. I have used this resource to create a learning activity for students who are doing school from home and it worked very well! It can be used in numerous ways. I'm sure there are many other strategies that teachers have found to include fun activities in lessons with students despite the challenges of remote learning.
