Flipgrid Materials (Course or Curricular Material)
Title: Flipgrid Materials
Author: Adam Rubin
Abstract: One tool we used throughout the project was Flipgrid, an online application that allowed participants to create short video “essays” that could in turn be shared with the instructors and with the whole group for critique. We used these videos in a few different capacities over the course of the week, first as a different way to collect short answer prompts to assess comprehension (“How a Local Building Reflects the Values of the Community,” “Reading a Chicago Building,” A Meaningful Tall Building to You”) and as a final report where participants explored a building in their own community, examining its history, context, materials, function, accessibility, and other subjects discussed during the course (Week 1 Final Videos, Week 2 Final Videos). Please use the guest password "skyscrapers2021” to access the videos.
