FluentKey turns videos into interactive learning activities to teach foreign language learners (including American Sign Language). This site's videos engage learners through the addition of captions, quizzes, and games embedded into videos. Take advantage of the large library of videos found on the site, or upload your own videos from YouTube, Facebook, or your computer. After creating your account, add class information and student lists, then assign videos and add quizzes and other interactive content. Students access your assignment using the code created; as students complete each assignment, view responses and class averages to each question on your classroom dashboard. In addition to assigning content to individual students, FluentKey Live is an interactive game for classrooms. Share a video from the site on your interactive whiteboard and ask students to participate on their own devices.

As students become proficient in a new language, encourage them to share their knowledge using a variety of multimedia tools. Annotate images using ThingLink, reviewed here, create an audio recording of conversations, or use PhotoCollage, reviewed here, to create a collage. As students become more proficient in their new language, ask them to record short podcasts with a podcast creation tool like Podcast Generator, reviewed here, and share tips and advice with their fellow students.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from July 2019, opens in Adobe Connect. Have we got a powerful, engaging, video discussion-based instructional strategy for you! Make room in your lesson plans for Fliphunts. Take free discussion-based edtech tool Flipgrid, add a well-crafted lesson along with a dash of any content area at any grade level; then stir in a heaping serving of critical thinking, creativity, and student voice and you have a fun a formative assessment to inform your instruction. Fliphunts are video-based scavenger hunts organized within Flipgrid -- get kids active in kinesthetic learning while immersing them in content. Challenge your students to show-what-they-know with a Fliphunt. Participants will: 1. Learn the basic use of Flipgrid to record responses and set up a grid; 2. Understand ways to use Fliphunts as formative assessment; and 3. Begin planning a Fliphunt for your classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
