Hello, and welcome to your second weekly update from Lourdes IT. We hope you all had a relaxing Easter, even in these strange times that we are all in.

Our team have continued to work throughout the Easter break – many thanks to the 54 people who have left positive vibes after we have dealt with their tickets, and for some of the lovely comments. It is a real morale boost to our team, some of whom are working alone at home or who are, like many others, adapting to a new normal away from the hustle and bustle of being onsite in schools.

This week:

  • Updated lists of hints, tips and useful resources in the shut down
  • Introducing FlipGrid
  • Training Sessions Update
  • Lourdes IT Updates

This week’s roundup of useful resources:

Introducing: FlipGrid

Flipgrid is a free simple way to foster short video-based discussions on classroom topics. It is free for schools, and is built for education, with safety of young people at its core – it is a Microsoft company and works on all browsers and devices.

Flipgrid is a free video discussion platform from Microsoft that helps educators see and hear from every student in class and foster a fun and supportive social learning environment. In Flipgrid, educators post discussion prompts and students respond with short videos, whether they are learning in class or at home.
